Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's thoughts on the 2014 World Cup will be on display for all as Yahoo have announced they have signed him as their global football ambassador for 2014, becoming an exclusive analyst for the internet giant.

With his press conferences always lively and unmissable, Mourinho is never one to shy from voicing his opinions, and will give Yahoo his unique commentary on all footballing matters along with spectacular access to his life with pictures and videos published on his own Tumblr page, so get following right now for instant access to the mastermind's thoughts.

Mourinho is renowned as one of the current game's best ever coaches - taking the Premier League by storm by winning back-to-back titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006, the 51-year old has an impressive CV throughout his career.

The Portuguese has also managed clubs along with Chelsea in Italy, Portugal and Spain, leading his teams to the league title in each of these countries, along with success on the European stage, winning the UEFA Cup and Champions League with FC Porto, and followed up by success in Europe's top competition with Inter Milan in 2010.

At the launch event Mourinho spoke to broadcaster Mark Pougatch, and explained why he chose to sign with Yahoo.

“I decided because it is very prestigious and I want to connect myself at every area with prestige; so I was looking for prestige,” he said.

“At the same time if I want to communicate with people - and that is the objective, to share some of my ideas about football and especially about the World Cup - I want to share with many, many millions.

“I don’t want to share with a few thousand that buy a normal newspaper or a couple of million who follow a certain TV channel. I share with many millions or I don’t share, so let’s share with many millions.

“For sure some will disagree, for sure some will say how can this guy be a top manager, but for sure some will agree with me and for sure I think we can have some fun.”
