Jose Mourinho Takes Over as Inter Milan Boss
Jose Mourinho has taken over as the new Inter Milan manager to replace Roberto Mancini.
This was something which I’m sure all of you knew, but this is the formal statement released by the club:
“Internazionale announce the arrival of Jose Mourinho.”
The statement also revealed his backroom staff, which he had at Chelsea, with the exception of the assistant manager :
“The Portuguese coach has signed a three-year contract and will work alongside Rui Farias, Silvino and Andrei Villas Boas. The assistant coach will be Giuseppe Baresi.”
While at Porto, Mourinho won the Uefa Cup in 2003 and the Champions League in 2004.
He also led Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2005 and 2006, while the Stamford Bridge side were beaten by Liverpool twice in the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2005 and 2007.
Mourinho is expected to have plenty of money to strengthen the side and he has reportedly maintained contact with some of his former Chelsea charges.
He has already been linked with Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba and no-one would be too surprised if one, or both, joined Mourinho at Inter before the new season begins.
