The Portuguese coach, who won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, has not worked since he was sacked by Italian Serie A side Roma in January after two-and-a-half years with the club. Roma were ranked ninth in the league upon his departure, and finished the season at 6th under Daniele De Rossi.

Mourinho guided the club to their inaugural Europa Conference League trophy in 2022 and the final of last season's Europa League. He also previously managed Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Real Madrid.

"Good evening Fenerbahce fans, see you tomorrow at Kadikoy (the Istanbul suburb where the club is based) and let's start our journey together," Mourinho posted on his new club's account on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

The 61-year-old confirmed the move when he was acting as a pundit for TNT Sports television at the Champions League final at Wembley.
