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."

The Lagos State University, Ojo, on Wednesday held its 20th convocation with Michael Arowosegbe, son of a contract security man, emerging the overall best graduating student of the institution.
Twenty-four-year-old Arowosegbe from Awe, Oyo State, who obtained a first class degree in Biochemistry, scored 4.86 Cumulative Grade Point Average out of a possible 5.0 to beat over 17, 000 candidates the university produced in the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 academic sessions.
Seven other graduating students obtained first class degrees from the ivory tower.
The valedictorian, who held the audience enthralled with his tortuous life journey, narrated how he helplessly watched a students’ protest on campus in 2011, where his father was stoned.
He said, “Many of my friends and colleagues never knew that he once worked as a contract staff, attached to the Campus Marshal. I witnessed a students’ protest while in 100 level, where he was stoned. I could not cry.
“As if that was not enough, another incident occurred on November 9, 2012, which changed my father’s life to this day. He had an accident on a bike, while on duty on campus, where he hit his head and back against the university gate. He could not move any of his limbs initially.
“Some even thought that was the end of him, and that it might affect my academics because there was no succour from the appropriate authorities. But, glory be to God, he is recuperating and I am today a graduate.”
 Arowosegbe, who also emerged the best graduating student from the Faculty of Sciences, noted that he reluctantly came to LASU after he was denied admission at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
He added, “I reluctantly chose LASU as my second choice in 2011 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and I almost ignored the post-UTME that year because I had already written that of OAU, where I scored 278. So, I thought with that score, together with a UTME score of 287, I was on my way to study Medicine and Surgery, so I felt the Biochemistry I chose in LASU was to fulfil all righteousness. Today, look at where that choice has brought me.
“Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, urged the graduating students to remain worthy ambassadors of the university.
 The VC also advised them to endeavour to connect and share experiences that would make them to be future leaders.
