Jose Mourinho joins Turkish giants Fenerbahce!

The world-famous Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, whose career is full of success and who has left a mark wherever he goes, signed the contract that binds him to the yellow and navy blue colours at the ceremony held at the Ülker Stadium Fenerbahçe Şükrü Saracoğlu Sports Complex. The signing ceremony, which was attended by tens of thousands of fans.

When the clocks showed 19h07, Jose Mourinho, who took the field with club president Ali Y. Koç, came to the podium prepared for the signing ceremony, accompanied by cheers.

President Ali Y. Koç: Today, we are stepping into a very important and precious historical day for our club together with our community

The great Fenerbahçe Family and the great Fenerbahçe fans, welcome to this historic day, to our temple, where we have played our matches for more than 100 years since our establishment. I salute with love and respect our millions of fans who watch us on the screens with our temple.

Today, we are stepping into a very important and precious historical day for our club together with our community. I hope Allah will bring the end to it well.

On behalf of all of you, on behalf of millions of Fenerbahce fans, I would like to welcome our coach Jose Mourinho to this world-shaking greatness, this uniqueness, this indescribable love and belonging.

He is arguably one of the 5 best teachers in the history of the world among all the teachers and is in front of you right now. He chose us for the future of our Fenerbahce and for the championships of our Fenerbahce. I welcome him and wish him all the best.

Chairman Ali Y. Koç: This signature we have signed today is the good news of the level we want to carry Fenerbahçe to and the lanes we aim to take part in

He has won the title of ‘Coach of the Year’ 4 times in the world’s biggest clubs, won 27 national and international trophies, is now the only coach in the world to lift 3 UEFA Cups and has written his name in world football. We have a coach who is not only successful, but also a world brand. This signature we have signed today is the good news of the level we want to carry Fenerbahçe to and the lanes we aim to be in. He will show us his position as a winning coach in other clubs, in other leagues.

Only last night in London, in the Champions League final, with his comments before, at half-time and after the match, and with the answers he gave to the questions asked to him, he made and will continue to make an extraordinary promotion of both our country and Fenerbahçe before he came to our country.

Our President Ali Y. Koç: Important profiles in football sometimes announce the facts you are trying to tell for hours or days to the whole world with a sentence. Our coach Mr. Mourinho is the most important of the names

With this signature, our coach will be able to tell the world about Fenerbahçe’s struggle as much as or even more than his technical director’s identity, and will also show his effect as a reflection power in a way that can attract all the attention. In football, not only in football, but in many subjects in the world, but because we talk about football, important profiles in football sometimes announce the facts you are trying to tell for hours or days to the whole world with a sentence. Our coach Mr. Mourinho is the most important of the names. It is the only goal of everyone here and millions of Fenerbahçe fans, without exception, to serve Fenerbahçe, and this is how it should be.

Yes, we already have a very strong squad and if there is no extraordinary offer, we will hopefully keep all of them together with the players we will put on top of it. We are the real champions of this year. The championship that we will reach next year by breaking the glass ceiling that we all desire and aim for will be the harbinger of the championships to come. It’s hard for all of us to wait for the season. We can’t fit inside, our excitement and hope are endless. May God help us. Good luck to Fenerbahce. Long live Fenerbahce.”

Manager Jose Mourinho: Your dreams are my dreams

Jose Mourinho, who started his speech accompanied by demonstrations of love and was often interrupted by cheers, said, “Your dreams are my dreams.”

Portugal coach Jose Mourinho thanked the fans for their interest and said, “First of all, I would like to thank you for your love. The feeling I get from you is that; Since my name was mentioned with Fenerbahçe, I deeply felt the love you have shown to this day. Normally, a coach sees this great love after his victory, but I can feel this love from you right at the beginning, before it. This also gives me a great responsibility. I promise you that from now on, I belong to your family. This jersey is like a skin, a bone. Football is a passion for you and for us, and I think I’m in one of the best places to feel that passion.

Since the day I met Mr. President, I can easily say that I wanted to be here for you. You guys are a huge group of supporters. And I say this from the bottom of my heart that I really wanted to be here for your passion.

I want to work here to develop and help Turkish football, the Turkish league, but the most important thing is neither to develop Turkish football nor to develop the Turkish Super League, the most important thing is Fenerbahce!

Finally, I would like to conclude my words with this. From this moment, from the moment I sign, your dreams are my dreams.”

Speaking again, our President Ali Y. Koç said, “Yes, dear fans, we will hold today’s signing ceremony a little differently. First of all, there will be a heart-signing ceremony with our fans, I ask my fellow managers to take one person from each stand to the stage and we want our fans and our coach to sign that signature.”

Our Coach Jose Mourinho, who signed the jerseys of our fans and took photos, then signed the official contract that binds him to the yellow and navy blue colors.

Our new coach Jose Mourinho, who toured the stands with our President Ali Y. Koç, responded to the affection of our fans and greeted the stands.

While the images of Jose Mourinho appeared on the screens, the Portuguese coach cheered and took pictures with the stands. The Portuguese coach left the pitch amid demonstrations of affection.
