“The Special One” is going to join state-run television station RT alongside former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel as a pundit for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Choice of station aside, Mourinho as pundit seems like quality entertainment. From RT:

Named FIFA World Coach of the Year in 2010, Mourinho boasts one of the most outstanding coaching resumes in world football. He will be in Moscow to share his expert analysis and predictions for the tournament with the network’s vast global audience.

We can see it now, “I’m not sure what Matic was doing for Serbia there. That was a disgraceful, childish goal.”
