Italy: Mourinho at Inter at Last

Inter Milan have finally confirmed the hiring of Jose Mourinho as their manager. The Special One has a three-year deal to take over the three-time defending Serie A champs with a clear mandate to do what Roberto Mancini could not- bring the squad their first European Cup since 1965. The Times Gabriele Marcotti offers Mourinho a word of caution about his new employer.

Mourinho has always been popular with his players, so it will be interesting to watch who follows him to the San Siro. Chelsea stars Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard have already been mentioned as transfer candidates. Mourinho is also popular with journalists for his ability to deliver a memorable soundbite and his introductory press conference tomorrow will undoubtedly peppered with some gems.
