The Special One is back: Jose Mourinho signs a four year contract to return as Chelsea manager.

Chelsea have appointed Jose Mourinho as manager for his second stint in charge of the west London club.

The Portuguese coach left his position at Real Madrid yesterday as the La Liga campaign came to a close, having only managed to win the Supercopa de Espana – the least prestigious of all trophies the club entered.

However, his trophy record is still spectacular.

The 50 year-old has won domestic league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, as well as the UEFA Champions League with both FC Porto and Inter Milan.

He will be tasked with attempting to bring the Blues their third European trophy in three seasons, with the Blues having won the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League in the last two years.

Mourinho will speak to the press for the first time on June 10th, where he will outline his plans for the team.

In ‘the Special One’s first spell at Stamford Bridge, he became the most successful manager in Chelsea history, winning six trophies in three years.

He was also undefeated in all home league games, and fans of the Blues will hope to see more of the same in his second spell in charge.

“I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea,” said chief executive Ron Gourlay to the official club website.

“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.”
