Jose Mourinho has been named as the new manager of Real Madrid Football Club.

The former Chelsea manager is Real's 11th coach in the past seven years.

The Portuguese boss won the Champions League with Inter Milan this season, a match which turned out to be his last in charge of the Italian side.

He will now work with Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Real from Manchester United for £80 million last summer.

Madrid finished second in the top division of the Spanish league this season, Barcelona finished top.

The fans will expect Mourinho to win lots of trophies after he signed a four year contract to manage the club.
