Mourinho Stars As Goalkeeper In Charity Match
Most football fans would have imagined if Jose Mourinho could have been successful as a footballer.
On Saturday, he got a chance to show a glimpse of what could have been by showing off his rarely-seen skills on the pitch.
The occasion was a charity football match for people affected by the June 14 Grenfell Tower fire.
Two teams managed by Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer battled it out at the stadium, not far from the tower block in North Kensington.
The 54-year-old came in in the second half when he replaced former England goalkeeper David James to a noisy reception.
He showed some useful touches, making a crucial early save as he battled to maintain his side's slender 2-1 lead at that stage of the match.
Mourinho was centre of attention for much of the time he was on the pitch.
Unsurprisingly, he was also booked for time-wasting, arguing the equalising goal was offside.
Despite scoring a penalty in the shoot-out, his team lost 5-3 on penalties in the match because he was unable to stop any of the penalties he faced.
Celebrities including multiple Olympics gold medallist, Mo Farah, actor Damian Lewis, Olly Murs and Wretch 32 featured in the game.
All ticket money went to the Evening Standard's fund for those affected by the tragedy, although 2,000 complimentary tickets were given to survivors, their families, volunteers who helped in the aftermath of the blaze and the emergency services.
At least 80 people died in the tower block blaze in west London on 14 June.
