Ibis are a well-known side but all for the wrong reasons, infamously known for failing to win a single game between 1980-84. Their woeful run gave them the nickname 'Pior Time de Mundo', translated as 'Worst Team in the World'.
The club had been tracking the availability of the 'Special One' since his Chelsea departure and publicly posted the contract on Twitter (see below).
Ibis jokingly outlined the challenge ahead for Mourinho were he to accept: "We will not give securities or assurance of continuity in our team, if the team has a sequence of two wins (at best)."
The 'contract' goes on to mention Mourinho would be gifted a new animal for every loss suffered and earn a salary increase for every thrashing received.
Ibis' sense of humour didn't stop there, with the club promising "immediate termination" of his two-year deal should the club begin to start playing well or, worse yet, win the league.
The Brazilian club released the 'contract' on December 28, the Brazilian equivalent of April Fools' Day. Like what you hear, Jose?
