Former Manchester United Coach, Jose Mourinho has gotten his first job as a Television Analyst in BeIN Sports after he was sacked as the Club’s Coach.
Mourinho , also known as the “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 was sacked by United in December after the club’s worst start to a season since 1990 and won three trophies during his two-and-a-half year tenure at Old Trafford.
In a statement by a BeIN Spokesman said: “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.”
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 told Correio da Manha earlier on Thursday that he would not take the job, noting that: “I don’t have any intention of coming back to work in Portugal. I’m fine at the moment” he said.
