Mourinho signs as Inter boss

Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been appointed as manager of the Italian side Inter Milan.

It's the first job for Mourinho since he left Chelsea in September 2007 and he has signed a three-year contract.

Inter Milan's last boss was Roberto Mancini, who was sacked despite leading the club to a third league title in a row last season.

Despite doing well in Italy, the team hasn't succeeded in the Champions League, going out in the last 16.

It's thought that Inter Milan hope Mourinho will help improve their success in Europe.

And his move has started rumours that he'll try to sign some of his former Chelsea players.
