After weeks of speculation, Portugal’s Jose Mourinho has been appointed as manager of Chelsea for the second time on Monday.

The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’, who left Real Madrid last weekend after a difficult season with no major trophies, has signed a four-year contract to replace former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

According to reports, he will be officially presented as the new Chelsea manager in a press conference in London next week, almost a decade since he was first unveiled at the club.

Mourinho, who will want to prove that the magic can work a second time, has set his own bar very high at Stamford Bridge, becoming the most successful manager in the club’s history during just over three years there by winning five major trophies between 2004 and 2007.
