Jose Mourinho secures new job as TV pundit with BeIN Sports

Jose Mourinho has secured his first job since
being sacked as Manchester United coach
after joining BeIN Sports as a pundit.
The broadcaster announced on Thursday that
‘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.
Mourinho was sacked by Manchester 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
“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
spokesman said in a statement.
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. “I
don’t have any intention of coming back to
work in Portugal,” he told the newspaper. “I’m
fine at the moment.”
