WATCH: The Moment Jose Mourinho Came On As Goalkeeper At The Game4Grenfell Charity Match!

Jose Mourinho has won 25 trophies in his glittering career as a manager, but the Portuguese tactician showed us he’s not too shabby on the pitch too, during the star-studded ‘Game4Grenfell’ charity match at Loftus Road.

The match was organised to raise funds for survivors of the tower disaster and help community projects in the area.

 

Having joked that he was worth a pound more than Neymar before the game, as well as being trolled by his manager Alan Shearer in the pre-match team talk, the Manchester United boss replaced David James in goal in the 63rd minute.

Bringing a commanding presence for Team Shearer, Mourinho looked perfectly competent with his feet, displaying distribution levels that his United No.1 David De Gea would be proud of.

His first contribution was to bravely punch the ball clear from danger from a corner, and then in typical Mourinho fashion, he was booked for timewasting a minute after entering the fray.

Despite an impressive cameo, he couldn’t keep a clean sheet after Kasabian bassist Chris Edwards struck an equaliser in the second half – though the 54-year old was furious and remonstrated with officials that it was offside.

He did, however, take his place in between the sticks for the penalty shoot-out after the game finished 2-2 at Loftus Road and was majorly confused by the recently introduced ABBA format, to the point where he nearly went in net for his teammate’s penalty.

Though ‘The Special One’ did convert from the spot, he failed to save any of the five penalties he faced – with Olly Murs, the man who he tripped over in a memorable charity match moment a couple of years back, notching the winner.

Twitter absolutely loved Mourinho going in goal. Get a load of these reactions…
