JOSE MOURINHO is in for an awkward encounter with new Sky Sports colleagues Gary Neville and Jamie Redknapp.
The Portuguese often clashed with the two pundits when they criticised him for his actions at Manchester United and Chelsea.
Sky Sports announced earlier today that Mourinho, 56, joined their punditry team.
The Portuguese coach will make is debut tomorrow during coverage of the blockbuster clash between his former teams – United and Chelsea.
But fans quickly pointed out that he has often mocked Neville, Redknapp and other pundits from the Sky Sports stable in the past.
When asked once during his first spell at Stamford Bridge about his game tactics, Mourinho told a reporter to “speak with Redknapp“, who is a “brilliant football brain”.
The Portuguese also laughed that the former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder forgot “every single thing he did on the pitch” having retired a couple years earlier.
And while working for RT Sport earlier this year, Mourinho took a swipe at Neville, mocking his unsuccessful spell as Valencia boss.
He said: “We have even in England, former top players, amazing in front of the screen.
“They go to football clubs, and after two months, goodbye, let’s go home because this is not right for us.”
JOSE MOURINHO'S BEST LINES
- On Gary Neville…
“In England, former top players, amazing in front of the screen. They go to football clubs and after two months, goodbye, let’s go home”
- On Jamie Redknapp…
“Jamie stopped playing a couple of years ago and in two years he forgot every single thing he did on the pitch.”
- On Graeme Souness…
“A pundit is not honest if they cannot forget their colours or if they try to hide the truth from their audience. It’s not my fault if their managerial career was very poor.”
