Mourinho is back! Chelsea confirms Special One’s return on 4-year deal

LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Chelsea have announced that Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the new manager, following the departure of Rafa Benitez at the end of the season.

Mourinho, after being away from the English Premier League for six-years, has been reappointed after being sacked during his first spell.

Chelsea announced on their website that Mourinho has been appointed on a four-year contract and returns to the club where he won two EPL titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup between 2004 and 2007.

“I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. His continued success, drive and ambition made him the outstanding candidate,” Ron Gourlay, Chelsea FC Chief Executive said on www.chelseafc.com.

“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.”

Since leaving Chelsea, Mourinho coached Inter Milan and most recently Real Madrid.
