The former Chelsea manager was unveiled as the club’s coach May 27, in a ceremony held late in the evening. He signed a three-year deal with an option of a fourth.
Mourinho has been long speculated to take over reigns from Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford since losing his contract at Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, the Dutchman narrowly missed a place in the English Premier League’s top four and this, allegedly caused him the job.
On many occasions, there’s been rumors that LVG won’t be leaving the Red Devils; and that Mou had fallen out of favor from Manchester United legends. All speculations has remained possibilities until yesterday.
These are Twitter comments on Jose’s appointment:
Next season will be electric in the dugouts. Mourinho, Klopp, Guardiola, Conte all fresh and keen….and Wenger of course.
Sooooo happy that Mourinho is @ManUtd manager. Should have happened 3 yrs ago! Want to forget the last 3 yrs, even FA cup win felt bizarre!
Watching Jose Mourinho talk about Manchester United and using “us” makes me cry all of the happy tears. #WelcomeJose
Mourinho unveiling isn’t until July but isn’t he managing a charity game there next week? Should help sell some tickets
