Jose Mourinho believes the task of leading Real Madrid for the next four years represents "the perfect challenge" for the next stage of his coaching career after he signed a new deal with the club.

The Spanish champions announced they had agreed a contract extension that will tie Mourinho, who signed an initial four-year deal when he joined the club in 2010, to the Bernabeu until June 2016.

Mourinho, who became the first coach to win the league in Spain, England (Chelsea) and Italy (Inter Milan), thinks the Real squad is only going to get better, and he said on www.realmadrid.com: "I've always said this squad is young and that its best years are yet to come."
