Chelsea confirm Jose Mourinho appointment
Chelsea have confirmed that Jose Mourinho is their new manager.
The worst kept secret in football is now official, with the Blues confirming the Special One will return for a second stint as their boss.
Chief executive Ron Gourlay said: “I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. 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.”
Mourinho will be officially unveiled as Chelsea’s new first-team manager at a press conference next Monday, June 10. He previously managed the club between 2004 and 2007.
