Jose Mourinho is the new manager of Chelsea, the club’s official
Mourinho has signed a four-year contract at Stamford Bridge, having left Real Madrid after the end of the La Liga season. He was previously in charge of the Blues between 2004 and 2007, winning two Premier League titles.
The 50-year-old later managed Serie A side Inter to success in the Champions League – his second continental triumph after winning the trophy with Porto – before switching to Madrid, winning the Spanish title in his second season at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ron Gourlay, the Chelsea chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. His continued success, drive and ambition made him the outstanding candidate.
“It is our aim to keep the club moving forward to achieve greater success in the future and Jose is our number one choice as we believe he is the right manager to do just that. He was and remains a hugely popular figure at the club and everyone here looks forward to working with him again.”
Mourinho will be joined by coches Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais, who will work alongside existing staff members Steve Holland, Christophe Lollichon and Chris Jones.
