MOST COMMENTED

The worst kept secret in world soccer has now been officially confirmed: Jose Mourinho has returned to Chelsea on a four-year deal. During his three-year reign from 2004-2007, the Portuguese led the Blues to two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two League Cups. After departing Chelsea by mutual consent in 2007, Mourinho went on to coach Inter Milan and Real Madrid, winning three league championships, two domestic cups and the UEFA Champions League with Inter in 2010.

"I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea,” club CEO Ron Gourlay said in a statement. “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 brings three assistant coaching staff with him from Real: Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais. He will be officially presented to the media in a press conference on Monday, June 10.
