Jose Mourinho the three-time Premier League winner will remain in West London until at least 2019 after signing a new deal ahead of the upcoming campaign. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has committed his future to the Premier League champions by putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract.
The former Porto boss spent three years in west London early in the Roman Abramovich era before enjoying trophy-laden spells at Inter and Real Madrid.
Rumours had suggested the 52-year-old would agree a new contract following a successful season with the club and, having restored Chelsea to become the dominant force in English football, Mourinho’s new deal until 2019 was announced on the eve of the new Premier League season.
“If the club is happy, I am happy,” said Mourinho.
“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.”

Mourinho’s initial exit from Stamford Bridge came about due to a disagreement with wealthy owner Abramovich, although relations appear to have improved in recent years. Speaking shortly after wrapping up the Premier League title last term, Mourinho stated he would “stay as long as Mr Abramovich wants me”.
Mourinho who lost to Arsenal in FA Community Shield last week is expected to host Swansea on the opening day of Premier League.
