José Mourinho will take over as manager of Manchester United from the 2016/17 season, signing a three-year contract with an option to stay at the club until at least 2020.
José, 53, has managed at the top level of European football for over a decade and in that time has won league titles and cups in four countries (Portugal, England, Italy and Spain), as well as winning the UEFA Champions League twice – in 2004 with FC Porto and in 2010 with Inter Milan.
Announcing the appointment, Ed Woodward said: “José is quite simply the best manager in the game today. He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, of course, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him to Manchester United. His track record of success is ideal to take the club forward.”
José Mourinho said: “To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.
“I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans. I’m looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years.”
No comments! 3 goals!!!
The best… no Messi and bla bla bla…
Another great win by Novak Djokovic! Another number: 6th Australian Open title!!
He says it is his favorite tournament, called by many: “happiest tournament”
The win: 6-1 7-5 7-6 (7-3) to claim his sixth Melbourne title, tying the record of Australia’s Roy Emerson.
Djokovic also draws level with tennis greats Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver on 11 Grand Slam titles!!
In the opposite side, Andy Murray is the player in the world to lost his 5 finals in the Australian Open, 4 of them against… precisely: Novak Djokovic!
The first set was the quickest one, solved in 30 minutes.
Fortunately, for tennis fans, Andy Murray gave some fight during the 2nd set (which last 80 minutes), solved in a tie-break! Some errors from both sides, which allowed that to watch more tennis. We had good moments too, with aces from both of them and the longest rally, with 36 strokes!!!
But, winning the first two sets (Djokovic), put the pressure all over Murray, who started badly the third (last) one with a point for Novak. But… because tennis is a sport where you can have ups and downs quickly, it happened to Novak and, Murray gave a good fight again, taking the game to another tie-break.
Yesterday, the German player Angelique Kerber won the Australian Open title against the master Serena Williams! Kerber fought back the best way!
In the first round she had to save a match point and did it well done and then, the final path! With nothing to loose, she tried hard and won the first Grand Slam title.
