Mourinho back on TV with biweekly show “On the touchline with José Mourinho”
Former Man United coach Jose Mourinho is set to return to TV, where he will cover the 2019 UEFA Champions League matches.
For two and a half years of work as United head coach, Mourinho had to listen to a lot of criticism from TV experts and former Red Devils’ players, including Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.
Now Jose will become a critic himself. The Portuguese specialist has concluded a contract with Russia Today for the period from March 7 to June 1.
Thus, Mourinho will be able to express his opinion on the transformation that happened to United after his dismissal in December.
We add that Mourinho was RT’s expert at the World Cup in Russia last summer. Then Jose earned £1.71 million for four days of work on the TV channel, which was considered to be a mouthpiece of the Kremlin and which was maintained at the expense of Russia’s taxpayers.
