Chelsea's Mourinho signs new deal with Premier League champions
The 52-year-old, who had previously been in charge from 2004-2007, rejoined the Stamford Bridge outfit in 2013
Jose Mourinho has committed himself to Premier League champions Chelsea until at least 2019 after signing a new four-year contract as manager, the west London club said on Friday.
The 52-year-old, who had previously been in charge from 2004-2007, rejoined the Stamford Bridge outfit in 2013 and led Chelsea to the league title and League Cup success last season.
"I said when I returned here that I have a special feeling for this club and nothing changed," Mourinho told the club's website.
"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."
