The Portuguese manager has agreed a compesation package
Jose Mourinho has now agreed a compensation package with Chelsea believed to be worth in the region of £20 million.
I am very proud of my work at Chelsea Football Club and I think my decision in May 2004 to come to England was an excellent one, said Mourinho.
It was a beautiful and rich period of my career. I want to thank all Chelsea FC supporters for what I believe is a never-ending love story.
I wish great success to the club, a club that will be forever connected to me for some historical moments.
Chelsea confirmed that all the loose ends in regards to the termination of Mourinho’s contract had now been concluded.
Chelsea Football Club has reached agreement on all contractual arrangements with Jose Mourinho, they revealed in a statement.
We had all reached a point where the relationship between the club and Jose had broken down.
This was despite genuine attempts over several months by all parties to resolve certain differences.
We also must pay tribute to the great job Jose did for Chelsea. He has been the most successful manager the club has known and he rightly deserves that place in our history.
