There has only been one show in town in the football world today, with Chelsea unveiling Jose Mourinho as their new manager in a press conference which is now available on the club's official YouTube channel.

The Portuguese coach guided the Blues to huge success during his last spell in charge of the team, winning two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups.

The 50-year-old has now returned to Stamford Bridge to replace interim manager Rafael Benitez, who has joined Napoli after his short-term contract at Chelsea expired at the end of the Premier League season.

Since leaving Chelsea in September 2007, Mourinho has taken Inter Milan to the 2010 Champions League title and broken Barcelona's dominance of the La Liga title in 2012 with Real Madrid.

Mourinho cut a subdued figure in comparison to his previous opening press conference with the Blues in 2004, where he described himself as "a special one" as BBC Sport reported.

During his second unveiling as Chelsea manager today, Mourinho talked of his relationship with club owner Roman Abramovich and declared himself as "the happy one" this time around, as Owen Gibson of The Guardian reported.

Mourinho also spoke of his disappointment at the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, and his views on the immediate future of Chelsea.
