It's finally official, José Mourinho is the new Manchester United manager. The club today confirmed that the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss will replace Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford dugout, having signed a three-year contract with the option of an additional fourth year.

Whereas the Manchester Evening News' Samuel Luckhurst has some pretty high hopes for what Mourinho will achieve at Old Trafford:
Ferguson was a genius and possibly the game's greatest manager. In 2013, he wasn't at the peak of his powers. Mourinho maybe yet to peak.— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) May 27, 2016
And finally, a begrudging admission, an aggressive dismissal of anyone who may dare to disagree, followed by a sad lament, from none other than Piers Morgan:
