Soccer Aid 2016: Managers announced

Soccer Aid 2016: Managers announced

Following last week's news that Louis Tomlinson will join the England ranks for Soccer Aid 2016, we can now reveal the managers who will be leading legends and celebrities alike in this sporting charitable battle.

Joining Robbie in the dugout to manage the England side will be José Mourinho, who led the Rest of The World Team to victory in 2014. He'll be assisted by Sam Allardyce and will face off against Claudio Ranieri for the ROW team.

José Mourinho says: I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World. Sam and I will make a very good partnership and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a match! I hope the organisers can help me now with an English passport!

Claudio Ranieri adds: Soccer Aid is a fantastic event, raising money for an amazing children's charity in Unicef. For Soccer Aid's 10th anniversary, it is a great honour that Robbie Williams has asked me to manage the Rest of the World XI and I'm looking forward to helping them defend their title!

This year's Soccer Aid takes place on 5th June and promises to be bigger, better and bolder than ever before. Get your tickets for the match by calling the number or clicking the link below.
