Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has made a return to the Premier League after he was sacked by Manchester United in December but the Portuguese is returning to the league in a different role.
Mourinho will work in the Premier League this season as a Sky Sports’ pundit, according to the announcement made by the media company.
Mourinho, who won the Premier League title three times with Chelsea, will make his first appearance in the Sky Sports studio for Chelsea’s visit to Manchester United on Sunday.
Speaking of his decision to work as a Sky Sports’ pundit, Mourinho said: “The Premier League is a special competition for me, one that takes so much hard work to win and you just can’t take your eyes off the matches every week.
“Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and it’s a pleasure for me to join this team and help to understand and explain what happened in each match. Football is a huge passion, it means so much to the fans, and I look forward to being part of the Premier League with them until I return to my place on the touchline.”
Sky Sports head of football Gary Hughes said: “Sky Sports has a fabulous team, but the best has just got better with Jose joining. He brings incredible success everywhere he has been and some terrific insight from being at the sharp end of football management for two decades.
“He’s a proven winner and ahead of our biggest season yet, we’re delighted to have him on our team.”
