The long time ago-born rumor has officially been confirmed few days after United won the FA cup after beating Crystal Palace 2-1 on extra time.
Manchester United management has announced signing former Chelsea manager as the new man to replace the axed Dutch man, Luis Van Gaal who could not make his 3rd year coaching at Old Trafford dream come true.
Announcing the appointment, Ed Woodward said: “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.”
José Mourinho said: “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.
“I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans. I’m looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years.”
