Jose Mourinho Plays 5-A-Side Football Just Like You Would Expect
Jose Mourinho has taken part in numerous charity games down the years, most notably fouling Olly Murs at Soccer Aid and going in nets for the ‘Game4Grenfell’ match in 2017.
It’s kind of bizarre to see someone who graced the touchline for so long actually play a game of football.
Mourinho, who has been out of a job since his sacking from Manchester United at the end of last year, has been busy on the punditry side of things recently, giving his thoughts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign in charge.
But away from analysing the beautiful game, a recent five-a-side match has given us further insight into his ability on the ball.
The 56-year-old integrated his ‘park the bus’ mentality and sideways passing style to the 4G pitch this week and well, I’ll let you be the judge of his highlight reel.
Mourinho clearly has some technical ability but we’re not sure he’ll play any Masters Football in the near future.
As mentioned earlier, Mourinho also appeared in the star-studded ‘Game4Grenfell’ charity match at Loftus Road two years ago, organised to raise funds for survivors of the tower disaster and help community projects in the area.
Having joked that he was worth a pound more than Neymar before the game, as well as being trolled by his manager Alan Shearer in the pre-match team talk, he replaced David James in goal in the 63rd minute.
Bringing a commanding presence for ‘Team Shearer’, Mourinho looked perfectly competent with his feet, displaying distribution levels that David de Gea would be proud of.
Stick to the touchline, Jose.
