Chelsea have announced that they have reappointed Jose Mourinho as manager of the club in a four-year deal.
Mourinho will return to the club where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007.
“I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea,” said Chelsea Chief Executive Ron Gourlay. “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 brings three coaching staff with him in Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais. Each carries the title of Assistant First Team Coach and will work alongside current first team staff Steve Holland, Christophe Lollichon and Chris Jones.
The Special One will be officially presented in a press conference at Stamford Bridge on June 10.
