Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will host a Champions League punditry show with RT in Russia.
Mourinho worked for the same channel during the Summer World Cup that was hosted in the same country and his return will see him take on the show after the Champions League round of 16 next week concludes. The show that is dubbed On The Touchline, will start airing on March 7th
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan coach also filmed a promotional advert of the new show in Russia where he also attended a hockey game and tripped himself while delivering the puck.
“The show will offer unique analysis from the Portuguese managerial great on all the week’s Champions League action, as well as special insight into the biggest talking points in the world of football,” said RT.
Mourinho will continue his role with Russia Today until the 1 June final. Mourinho was sacked late last year after a turbulent third season at Manchester United. The club has gone on to play ten league games and have not lost a single one across competitions since Ole Gunnar Soslskjaer replaced him.
Mourinho worked as a pundit on the Qatari-based TV station beIN Sports last month.
