This is what happened when Mourinho left the dugout to play in goal

Jose Mourinho was once again at the centre of attention in the charity match to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire. He assisted as a keeper as opposed to as a coach for either side.

The Portuguese manager was one of the members of Alan Shearer’s team who faced Les Ferdinand’s side, and Mourinho came on in the second half of the Game4Grenfell at Loftus Road, replacing David James in goal.

‘The Special One’ never played football professionally, but he was a goalkeeper at amateur level. Coming on with a flashy orange jersey with the No 1 on his back, the United boss immediatelly took to the spotlight.

Mourinho was sent on with words of encouragement from Alan Shearer, and the first thing he did was fist the ball away confidently:

He is lacking some speed, but his reflexes are not bad…


He did, however, have to pick the ball out of his own net.

He conceded all five penalties in the shoot-out…

But then he stepped up to score his kick.
