Chelsea boss Mourinho signs new four-year contract

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has signed a new four-year contract.

The 52-year-old returned in 2013 for a second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge and led the club to the Premier League title and a Capital One Cup triumph last season.

The new deal means he is set to remain with the Blues until at least 2019.

“I said when I returned here that I have a special feeling for this club and nothing changed,” Mourinho said.

“I think this is a normal thing for me to sign a new contract. It is important we have this continuity and I hope we can enjoy more success in the future – for the fans, the players and the club.

“It is the club closest to my heart and I am very happy to know I will be staying here for a long time.”

During Mourinho’s first spell at the helm, between 2004 and 2007, Chelsea were champions twice. His 70% win rate is better than any other manager in Premier League history.
