Former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho will get the opportunity to feel the homeside dugout at Oldtrafford in a charity game on the 5th of June.
Mourinho who is widely tipped to take over from Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United will be in the dug-out at Manchester United for Soccer Aid charity purposes irrespective of whether he replaces Louis van Gaal at the club this summer.He is set to be assisted by Sam Allardyce and Robbie Williams, while Claudio Ranieri, manager of title-chasing Leicester, will be in charge of a Rest of the World team.
Mourinho who coached the rest of the world’s team to a 4-2 victory in 2014 is excited to be part of it again this year and says he wants to be the first manager to win it for both teams “I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World”, said the Portuguese “Sam and I will make a very good partnership and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a match!I hope the organisers can help me now with an English passport”.
