New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was unveiled to the press today, posing for photographs at Old Trafford and holding a press conference.

Mourinho has won titles in the Premier League before in two spells as Chelsea manager, but ended his most recent tenure at the club on a sour note, sacked in December after a poor run of form.

He has now taken over from Louis van Gaal at United, who could do no better than finish fourth and then fifth in his two seasons at Old Trafford, even if that and a FA Cup win was an improvement on David Moyes, who only managed a seventh placed finish.

There was no declaration of being a 'Special One' or 'Happy One' in Mourinho's opening press conference as he did at Chelsea, instead simply conveying a steely determination to succeed.

He had time for a quick quip at Arsene Wenger's lack of trophies, as well as defending his track record of promoting youth, explaining there were 49 young players he had given debuts to during his career, SkySports reported.

Mourinho admitted his last season at Chelsea was a 'disaster', and for supporters of the Blues it is quite an adjustment to see him representing the Red Devils.
