Fans of Manchester United will be happy to know that Jose Mourinho will be seen managing at Old Trafford this coming summer. The 53-year-old coach will be seen giving coaching orders from the sidelines of the Theater of Dreams. However, it won’t be Manchester United who he would be managing, at least not yet. The Portuguese will manage England against Rest of the World managed by Claudio Ranieri for the Soccer Aid match.
The match will be organized by Unicef on June 5, 2016, at Old Trafford and both teams will comprise of celebrities. Sunderland gaffer Sam Allardyce will assist the self-proclaimed “special one” in the match.
“I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World. Sam and I will make a very good partnership and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a match!” Mourinho said, as reported by Daily Star.
One of the hottest topics in world football at the moment is which club will Jose Mourinho manage next? The Portuguese have been heavily tipped to take over at Manchester United next season, although some rumors have also linked the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager to Paris Saint-Germain.
Speculations are ripe that current manager of Old Trafford Louis Van Gaal will be sacked in the summer. Even though Mourinho hasn’t been offered with an official contract yet, they believe that he is more than excited to succeed Van Gaal at the Theater of Dreams.
If rumors are to be believed, then the United hierarchy has already sanctioned the move of three transfers to greet the man from Setubal, Portugal next season. It is understood that the two-time Champions League winner wants a solid spine for his team to challenge for the Premier League title and his plans include the likes of soon to be a free-agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Benfica’s Renato Sanches and Everton’s John Stones, according to The Sun.
