With eight league titles in 12 years with four different clubs, Jose Mourinho is in a class of his own as a manager.
Chelsea made arguably their most vital signing of the summer by locking up “The Special One” – manager Jose Mourinho – on a four-year contract extension.
Unsurprisingly, news of the deal was met with overwhelming enthusiasm from Chelsea fans on Twitter.
@The_kenny77 agree. Jose Mourinho is by far the best there has been! Others failed at other clubs.He won everywhere!

In his first stint with the Blues from 2004 to 2007, Mourinho won 2 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup and 2 Football League Cups.
After five years between Inter Milan (two Serie A titles and a Champions League win) and Real Madrid (one La Liga title and a Copa del Ray win), Mourinho returned the Blues to Premier League glory in his second year of his most recent stint at Stamford Bridge.
@ChelseaFC that sounds great congratulation mourinho

For his coaching career, Mourinho owns 496 wins in 741 matches – a whopping 66.94% winning rate. With Chelsea his winning percentage is at a still-impressive 65.65%.
Mourinho’s 70% win rate is better than any other manager in Premier League history, while our 95-point haul in 2004/05 remains unmatched.
