JOSE Mourinho has returned to Stamford Bridge to manage Chelsea.
Mourinho has signed a four-year contract with the Blues and replaces interim boss Rafael Benitez at the helm.
He is returning to the club where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups between 2004 and 2007.
Since leaving Chelsea in 2007, the 50-year-old Portuguese has led Inter Milan and Real Madrid, lifting three league titles, two domestic cups and the Champions League.
Ron Gourlay, Chelsea chief executive, 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 joined by 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.
Mourinho will be presented to the media at a press conference on Monday June 10.
