Soccer Aid is a wonderful event that allows people to pack Old Trafford and watch their favorite players and celebrities play in a match for charity. But even more importantly, it is a chance to watch Jose Mourinho get stuck in.
Yes, Mourinho got stuck in.
He ran off of his bench and tackled Olly Murs*, then scampered back to the technical area with a smile. And Mourinho was taking the match seriously too, eschewing the track jacket and putting on his best suit.
So let it be known: Mourinho's short and unimpressive career as a player was not for lack of skill. He quit because he knew he was a better manager than a player.
But he can still get stuck in. STUCK IN.
He didn't need to buy Nemanja Matic. He could have put himself in the midfield.
How are you feeling, Mou?
* Apparently, Olly Murs is a singer-songwriter who finishing runner up in X-Factor one time. The more you know.
