article imageOp-Ed: Jose Mourinho signs new four-year deal with Real Madrid

By Christopher Bates     May 22, 2012 in Sports
Madrid - Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has signed a new four-year deal with the club, keeping him at the Bernabeu until 2016.
After capturing the Spanish league title this year (Madrid's first in four years), Mourinho is hungry for more success with the Spanish giants.
He won the Copa del Rey with Madrid during his first season in charge, but after being knocked out of this year's Champions League by runners-up Bayern Munich, Mourinho will no doubt be eyeing European success with Madrid next year, much like he enjoyed during his time as manager of both Porto and Inter Milan.
With players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Mesut Özil to choose from, Mourinho will surely be a pain in the side of Tito Vilanova - who will take over from Pep Guardiola at Barcelona.
Should Barcelona defeat Athletic Bilbao to capture the Copa del Rey on Friday, they will be set to meet Madrid in the Spanish Supercup in August - a tie which ended up 5-4 on aggregate last year.
Once Mourinho feels he has achieved enough at Madrid, I am sure he will set his eyes on Sir Alex Ferguson's job, if he ever intends to retire.
