  1. Goodbye


    How fitting would this be?

    Jose Mourinho appointed Manchester United manager on the day he won his first Champions League title in 2004, also the day United won the treble in 1999 and the day the great Matt Busby was born in 1909.

    Written in the stars?


  2. So where is Jose right now?


    Last seen in a 4x4 in south London earlier this afternoon...

  3. 'Mourinho a true winner'


    Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has jumped the gun on Facebook, congratulating Jose Mourinho on being announced as manager "of the biggest club in the world."

    "One thing I can tell Manchester United fans is that they have got themselves a true winner in all aspects. His CV shows success," writes Ferdinand.

    "After his recent unsuccessful time at Chelsea in the final year, I can assure you this winner is now a wounded animal which makes him such a mouthwatering appointment."

  4. Zlat's a reminder


    Earlier today, Zlatan Ibrahimovic said this about the incoming Manchester United manager. Are the two likely to link up again? Could Manchester United make two high-profile signings in the next week or so?

    "When I left Inter Milan with him [Jose Mourinho] we had a short time together, let's see how it plays out. I don't give guarantees, but there are concrete offers from the Premier League."

    The full interview with the Swedish striker is here.

  5. Mourinho not Hodgson's concern


    Still waiting for an official announce from Manchester United on the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager.

    "I don't like to talk about those things, I am not here to talk about that," said England boss Roy Hodgson. 

    "I am here to talk about England and the Euros in France. Club business is just that, there are people out there who have been have been happy to give their opinion but I don't want to be drawn into those discussions."

  6. Sturridge 'not fit'


    More England team news for their friendly against Australia on Friday.

    Defender Gary Cahill has had another injection in his hip but should be fully fit by early next week.

    Striker Daniel Sturridge is "not fit today" and his calf strain will be assessed, which means teenager Marcus Rashford could get his debut for the Three Lions.

  7. Delph out England 23



    Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph has a groin strain and will miss England's friendly against Australia on Friday (kick-off 19:45 BST). 

    Manager Roy Hodgson has told him he will now be on the standby list and will not be in the 23-man squad.

  8. Calm down


    Cristiano Ronaldo says "calm down" and we are advising the same.

    Manchester United have made NO official announcement regarding the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager.

  9. Hold your horses


    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    "Jose Mourinho has not yet been appointed as Manchester United as the club can only do that through formal announcement on New York Stock Exchange, which they can only do when the contract is signed.

    "Remember, nothing official yet from the club."

  10. Awaiting official announcement


    Still nothing official from Manchester United regarding the announcement of Jose Mourinho as manager.

    The club's Twitter account has not been updated for four hours, so I guess that's the place to stay across for something concrete.
