On the Touchline with Jose Mourinho will air on Russian television channel RT on March 7
Jose Mourinho is returning to Russian television with his own Champions League show.
The former Manchester United manager was a pundit for RT’s coverage of the 2018 World Cup and will now feature in the new fortnightly show, On the touchline with Jose Mourinho, which airs on March 7.
Mourinho filmed a promotional advert for the show during a recent visit to Russia and told viewers in a short clip: “I’m going to talk about football on RT, what else did you think I was going to do?”
RT added: “The show will offer unique analysis from the Portuguese managerial great on all the week’s Champions League action, as well as special insight into the biggest talking points in the world of football.”
Mourinho also appeared at a hockey rink in Moscow when he slipped on the ice while performing a ceremonial puck drop.
The manager lost his job at Old Trafford in December and was replaced by interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who remains unbeaten in his first 11 games in charge.
Mourinho’s Russian show will air after the first set of Champions League last 16 second leg matches have finished – and will continue his role until the final on June 1.
