Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has given the public his never seen skills as he took part in a charity football match to aid the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire which happened in June.
Mourinho, who always played as a midfielder but never above the semi-professional level, resolved to come on as a substitute goalkeeper in the second-half of the match.
The match was between two teams of ex-players & celebrities and held at QPR’s Loftus Road. Jose substituted former England’s goalkeeper, David James, to a noisy reception.
He remained the centre figure of the match making crucial early saves to keep his side’s 2-1 lead at that point in the match. He was equally penalized for his argumentative quality with the referee and also for time wastage. He equally converted a penalty shootout to a goal. His side eventually lost in the match despite his efforts.
Celebrities who took part in the match included, Olly Murs, Mo Farah, Damian Lewis, Wretch 32, Grenfell survivors and two firefighters. The 2 teams were managed by Les Ferdinand & Alan Shearer.
The crowd were thrilled with performances from Emeli Sande, Rita Ora and of course, Marcus Mumford at the half-time break.
All the ticket money was sent to the Evening Standard’s fund to aid those affected by the tragedy & another 2000 complimentary tickets was sent to the survivors, their families as well as volunteers who assisted in the aftermath of the blaze and finally, to emergency services.
It was such a fun filled event at the stadium which was about a mile from the tower block at North Kensington.
