José Mourinho was introduced as Manchester United manager on Tuesday, and he wasn't pulling any punches. The former Chelsea boss revealed that he's out to win the title in his first season as Manchester United manager; that United's third signing of the summer is almost done and a fourth will follow; that he certainly doesn't see Wayne Rooney as a midfielder; and that the Manchester weather is every bit as disappointing as Sir Alex Ferguson had warned.

Here's a clip of Mourinho in action at the Old Trafford press conference, courtesy of NBC. It's certainly very exciting to have one of the world's greatest managers in the hotseat, and one reassuring in his absolute confidence to get the job done. Unlike under Louis van Gaal, there was no talk of philosophies and bedding-in periods, and it's clear that Mourinho expects results instantly. An entertaining season certainly looks in store.
