Internazionale Quotes of the week

The hugely successful Portuguese tactician was the red hot favourite to succeed Mancini after he was sacked by the Giuseppe Meazza outfit last week.

Mourinho has been out of work since September after being sacked by Chelsea following a bust-up too many with owner Roman Abramovich and a slow start to the Premier League season.

The 45-year-old enjoyed a successful three-year spell in English football, helping Chelsea to win the Premier League and League Cup twice, the FA Cup and the Community Shield.

Arrival

"Internazionale announce the arrival of Jose Mourinho," read a statement on Inter's official website.

"The Portuguese coach has signed a three-year contract and will work longside Rui Farias, Silvino and Andrei Villas Boas.

"The assistant coach will be Giuseppe Baresi."

He was also strongly linked with the England job following Steve McClaren's sacking, however, The FA opted to go for Italian Fabio Capello.

The former Porto boss has signed a three-year deal with the Serie A champions, who claimed a third successive Scudetto last season.
