Jose Mourinho in ‘negotiations’ with Fenerbahce over manager role

Fenerbahce have “started negotiations” with Jose Mourinho over their head coach role.

Mourinho, 61, has been out of work since being sacked by Roma in January.

Negotiations were revealed by the Istanbul-based club on public disclosure platform KAP, as part of a legal process to alert investors.

Fenerbahce parted company with previous boss Ismail Kartal on Friday, whose side amassed 99 points in the league last season but ended three points behind city rivals Galatasaray.

“Our company has started negotiations with Jose Mario Dos Santos Mourinho Felix for the post of Football A team coach,” the Fenerbahce post read.

“It is announced with respect to our investors.”

Should negotiations be completed, Mourinho’s task will be to help Fenerbahce to a first Super Lig title since the 2013-14 season.

The Portuguese manager has eight league trophies on his CV across four countries, England, Italy, Portugal and Spain – three with Chelsea, two with Inter Milan, two with Porto and one with Real Madrid.
