‘The Special One’ Jose Mourinho has agreed to become the next manager of Fenerbahçe.

It is spectacularly difficult for someone of Mourinho’s caliber to stay without managing a club for too long. While his time at the helm of Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester United has been the stuff of legends, of late he has focused more on less popular sides across Europe and still won good laurels with them.

The Serie A stint at AS Roma was indeed interesting but as is often the case with the Portuguese gaffer, there were ups and downs in a tumultuous fashion. Now the gaffer is all set to return to managerial duties.

According to multiple reports, Jose Mourinho is set to sign a two-year deal to become Fenerbahçe’s new manager. The Turkish outfit are looking to end their wait for a league title.

Despite recording 99 points during the recently concluded season, they lost the title to their city rivals Galatasaray. Manchester United fans would be all too aware of the side that played a big part in knocking the Red Devils out of the Champions League in the group phase.

Interestingly, United supporters will also be happy to see their former gaffer reunited with a former player he coached during his time at Old Trafford, Fred.
