Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had a successful second stint at Stamford Bridge thus far, and now he will be around for the foreseeable future.
According to the official Chelsea FC website, the Blues have agreed to a contract extension for their outspoken boss, and it will run through 2019.
“If the club is happy, I am happy. I think this is a normal thing for me to sign a new contract,” Mourinho said when reacting to his new deal.
“It is important we have this continuity and I hope we can enjoy more success in the future.”
Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge in 2013 before leading Chelsea to their third Premier League title under his watch.
He had previously led them to two titles in his first stint from 2004 to 2007, winning the title in 2005 and 2006.
Despite his success with Chelsea, the Blues parted ways with him before he moved on to Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
The Serie A club won two titles and the Champions League under watch while Real Madrid took home a La Liga championship, which prompted the Blues to lure him back to Stamford Bridge.
During his coaching career, Mourinho has recorded 496 wins in 741 matches – a whopping 66.94% winning rate. With Chelsea his winning percentage sits at a still-impressive 65.65%.
The Blues figure to be in contention for the Premier League title as long as their boss is around, and they have assembled the pieces necessary for Mourinho to work with.
