    Jose Mourinho has officially being announced as Manchester United new manager, following the sacking of Louis van Gaal.

    Yesterday, Jose reportedly left his London home in a Range Rover to sign a three-year deal worth around £45m with the club.

    Announcing the appointment, United 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.’

    In response, Mourinho said: ‘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.’

    The Portuguese was fired as Chelsea FC head coach in December last year, when the Blues were sitted 16th on the 2015/2016 EPL standings with 15 points, having won just 4 out of the 16 matches played so far.

    The former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Internazionale and Porto coach will look to succeed where David Moyes and his mentor Van Gaal failed, in what is proving to be a challenging post-Alex Ferguson era at United since 2013.
