Mourinho A Chelsea Man Soon

Jose Mourinho has confirmed via a television interview with Spanish TV football show Punto Pelota that he will be appointed Chelsea manager by the end of this week.

"I'm going to London on Monday and at the end of the week I will be the manager of Chelsea," said Mourinho.

"I feel the people there love me and in life you have to look for that.

"Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you."

Mourinho is set to join Chelsea from La Liga giants Real Madrid where he rounded off his three-year reign with a 4-2 victory over Osasuna on Saturday.

He is set to replace former interim manager Rafael Benitez, who left the club after guiding them to third place in the Premier League while also clinching Europa League glory.

When Mourinho was manager of Chelsea he proved a worthy asset leading the Blues to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006 before departing in 2007 after reported disagreements with owner Roman Abramovich over transfer budgets.
