English Premier League fans are set to see more of former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho after League Broadcasters Sky Sports announced his return as ‘part of their biggest ever season of football’.

The three-time EPL winner will join Sky Sports this season and will make his studio debut when his former sides Chelsea and Manchester United clash on Sunday evening.

The broadcaster hailed Mourinho as someone who will bring a lot to their table.

“The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager brings a wealth of knowledge from dressing rooms and dugouts across the country and strong opinions that will be put to use in the Sky Sports studio this season,” read one of the statements in their article.

The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has been without a club since Manchester united axed him in December 2018.

He has a decorated coaching career behind him and Sky Sports might be longing to unleash the new member of their evergreen punditry team.

He led FC Porto to Champions League glory before doing it again with Inter Milan in 2010.

He also won La Liga with Real Madrid and back to back Premier League titles with Chelsea.

At Old Trafford, he guided United to League Cup and Europa League success before he was axed for alleged player fall out.

Speaking on the new job, the former Premier League coach said that Sky Sports is the home of a special tournament.

 "The Premier League is a special competition for me, one that takes so much hard work to win and you just can't take your eyes off the matches every week.

"Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and it's a pleasure for me to join this team and help to understand and explain what happened in each match. Football is a huge passion, it means so much to the fans, and I look forward to being part of the Premier League with them until I return to my place on the touchline," he said.

He joins a high profile team with the world’s best pundits like Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp as they hit the studio today for the super Sunday action.

Arsenal will be hoping to start the season on a high when they visit Newcastle while club legends Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard will look to claim first-day victory when Chelsea head to Old Trafford. ?
