The former Chelsea boss who was sacked from Chelsea last season midway has appointed by Manchester United. Jose Mourinho has signed a three contract with the club in effect from the 2016/17 season.
After officially announcing Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford, club’s Executive vice-Chairman, Ed Woodward said: “José is quite simply the best manager in the game today. He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, of course, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him to Manchester United. His track record of success is ideal to take the club forward.”
Mourinho was quoted saying: “To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.
“I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans. I’m looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years.”
Jose Mourinho’s arrival at the club marks the beginning of a new era at Manchester United. Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013, the club’s performance graph went downwards. Two managers have been sacked from the club in the last 3 seasons.
Dutch manager Louis van Gaal left the job a week back after Manchester United lifted the FA Cup title, their only silverware in the last three seasons.
