Manchester United’s ex-manager José Mourinho is to host his own show on Russian TV channel RT, formerly known as Russia Today, the station says.
Mourinho, 56, will provide analysis of Champions League games in the fortnightly football programme.
“I’m going to talk about football on RT. What else did you think I was going to do?” he says in a promotional video.
Mourinho worked as a pundit for the Moscow-based RT network during the 2018 World Cup, which was held in Russia.
He was sacked by Manchester United in December after two years at the Old Trafford club, following a disappointing period in which United said it had identified a catalogue of failings.
“After the previous stage of my career was over, everyone wondered what I was going to do next,” Mourinho says in the video advertisement posted on YouTube.
“I wanted a new challenge… I’m used to surprising people,” he adds.
His new show on the Russian state-funded broadcaster is called On the Touchline with José Mourinho. It is due to begin on 7 March.
