Jose Mourinho will be an analyst for Arsenal game against Chelsea on January 19 as well as Qatar and Saudi Arabia’s Asian Cup group-stage tie on January 17 having secured his first job as Pundit at BeIN Sports since sacked as Manchester United manager.
The broadcaster announced it on Thursday January 10 – “Jose is one of the greatest football managers of all time, and we hope that his expert analysis and charismatic personality will be enjoyed by our millions of viewers,” a BeIN spokesperson said in a statement.
The Portuguese manager was never going to stay out of the limelight for too long. He has only been out of a job for a few weeks, but he is already set to return to our television screens.
“The Special One” will be an analyst for Chelsea’s Premier League trip to Arsenal on January 19 as well as Qatar and Saudi Arabia’s Asian Cup group-stage tie on January 17 on the Qatari channel’s broadcasts in the Middle East and North Africa.
He won three trophies during his two-and-a-half year tenure at Old Trafford but was sacked by United in December after the club’s worst start to a season since 1990.
Mourinho had been linked with a return to former club Benfica after the Lisbon giants fired coach Rui Vitoria last week, but the 55-year-old said earlier that he would not take the job.
“I don’t have any intention of coming back to work in Portugal,” “I’m fine at the moment.”
He has also been linked to a move to Santiago Bernabéu
