Since 2003 he has won 23 trophies and has over a decade of experience. Manchester United are hoping he can give the club the winning boost it so desperately needs.

Ed Woodward announced the appointment.

“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.”
