Mourinho enjoyed a long spell off, dodging manager appointment speculation

‘The Special One’ has signed on to manage Manchester United for three years starting in the 16/17 season with the option to extend his contract into 2020. The signing is not surprising consider the level of talent that the Red Devils need at the helm if they are to claim a premier league trophy.

Given that Mourinho has hauled in 22 trophies since 2003 it is possible that Manchester United kiss hardware before 2020 hits.Ed Woodward, Executive Vice-Chairman of the club had this to say,

“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.”

Jose was positive about the new position as well,

“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.”

And that romance seems to have gotten off on the right foot. Already the talk is about Jose’s potential to lure a star like Zlatan Ibrahimovich to add to the club’s attack arsenal as well as the fan’s affection for him.
