Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the new manager of Manchester United.
After days/weeks/months of speculation, Mourinho was finally appointed on a three-year deal on Friday morning, with an option for a fourth year.
Announcing the appointment on Manchester United’s official site, Ed Woodward praised Mourinho’s qualities:
“José is quite simply the best manager in the game today,” Woodward said.
“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.”
Let battle commence.
