Jose Mourinho is back in the Premier League.
Not as a manager, but as a pundit.

Our partners at Sky Sports in the UK have signed up three-time Premier League winner Mourinho, 56, to be an analyst for them this season.
Mourinho’s debut for Sky will be at Old Trafford on Sunday, as his two former teams Manchester United and Chelsea (Watch live, 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) clash.
“The Premier League is a special competition for me, one that takes so much hard work to win and you just can’t take your eyes off the matches every week,” Mourinho said. “Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and it’s a pleasure for me to join this team and help to understand and explain what happened in each match. Football is a huge passion, it means so much to the fans, and I look forward to being part of the Premier League with them until I return to my place on the touchline.”
Mourinho has stated on numerous occasions since he was fired by United last December that he wants to spend time working with the media to understand how he is perceived by them. The man who won the Champions League title with FC Porto and Inter Milan has been a serial winner throughout his career and always has something interesting to say.
After a stint with BeIN Sports, the self-professed “Special One” will now be on Sky Sports for the upcoming season.
No matter what you think about Mourinho, this should be box office.
