Former Chelsea manager and Real Madrid boss José Mourinho has been unveiled as the new coach of Turkish Super Lig team Fenerbahce, today Sunday, the club said.
Following days of strong indications that Mourinho was to take charge, the Istanbul club said in a post on X early on Sunday, that the Portuguese manager was to attend a ceremony at their Sukru Saracoglu ground.
“Saracoglu is waiting for its new coach Jose Mourinho and its great fans at 19:00,” the post reads.
Fenerbahce posted a video message from Mourinho, 61, Saturday night, in which he told the club’s fans he would “see you tomorrow in Kadikoy and let’s start our journey together.”
It’s Mourinho’s first job since he left Roma in January after two and a half years marked by winning the Europa Conference League in 2022 and a series of disputes with referees.
The Portuguese has not worked outside of the top five European leagues since 2004, when he left Porto after winning the Champions League and joined Chelsea, which was on the rise under then-owner Roman Abramovich.
Since then he has also coached Inter Milan, Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham in a career filled with trophies and off-field controversy.
