Jose Mourinho is back from his holidays and ready for business at Manchester United

Jose Mourinho’s summer holidays are over as he prepares to get ready for life as Manchester United manager.

The Portuguese coach has been appointed as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract after Louis van Gaal’s sacking at the end of last season.

Mourinho has been enjoying some downtime in the Maldives with his family in recent days as he prepared for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Now, however, the former Chelsea boss is back in England and getting ready to take on his role as United boss on a full-time basis.

Mourinho shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account on Friday afternoon and wrote: “Back in england / holidays over.”

Mourinho has already moved quickly to sign 22-year-old defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal in the summer transfer window as the Portuguese coach looks to revamp his squad ahead of next season.
