    Jose Mourinho has been confirmed as Chelsea's manager, returning for a second stint in charge at the club.
    Mourinho, 50, replaces Rafael Benitez after leaving Real Madrid, and has signed a four-year contract.
    The Portuguese won two consecutive Premier League titles during his first spell, which ended in September 2007.


    Mourinho told Chelsea TV: "I promise exactly the same things I promised in 2004, with this difference to help - which is I'm one of you."
    He added: "In football, in my career I've had two great passions, Inter and Chelsea, and Chelsea is more than important for me.


    "It was very, very hard to play against Chelsea and I did it only twice, which was not so bad."

    Mourinho, who will be officially presented in a press conference at Stamford Bridge next Monday, 10 June, brings three coaching staff with him in Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais.
    Chief executive Ron Gourlay said of Mourinho: "He was and remains a hugely popular figure at the club and everyone here looks forward to working with him again."

    He is a mover and a shaker, and the Premier League is better for having him back.
    Anyone agree?
