José Mourinho to manage Soccer Aid's Rest of the World Team

As Soccer Aid 2014 ebbs ever closer we are very excited to announce that one of the greatest managers of all time, Chelsea F.C.’s José Mourinho, has signed up to manage the Rest of the World team.

He’ll head a formidable ensemble of footballing legends and international entertainment talent as his team take on England in the epic sporting standoff on 8th June. Recent additions to the side include Jeremy Renner, Allesandro Del Pierro and Santiago Cabrera, who’ll pit their wits against an England side managed by Sam Allardyce at Manchester’s legendary Old Trafford stadium.


Thanks to UNICEF for asking me to manage The Rest of the World at Soccer Aid on Sunday June 8th at Old Trafford. I'm looking forward to beating Robbie Williams' and Big Sam’s England team and raising money for UNICEF.
