Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has landed two new big jobs barely two weeks after losing his Tottenham Hotspur head coach role.

The 58-year-old Portuguese-born coach joined the SunSport team as an expert columnist for the Euros billed for this summer to analyse and give his opinion on games as they unfold.

Jose has won two Champions League with FC Porto and Inter Milan as well as league titles in Portugal, Italy, Spain and England and this is one huge reason he is qualified for the role.

The Sun reported the development on their website and gave their readers a hint of what to expect with the 'Special One's' analysis when the games begin on June 11, 2021.

It is a double celebration for the former Real Madrid handler who also struck a deal with Talk Sport to join their team on the radio.

Sport Bible detailing Mourinho's new move reveals that he will join the likes of Laura Woods and Simon Jordan on talkSPORT for the network's extensive coverage of the Euros, starting in June.

The publication added that Mourinho will be on talkSPORT's live Euro GameDay programming, as well as regular slots at breakfast, which will include pre-game insight and an exclusive post-game phone-in for listeners.

He will be in the studios for all three England group games, one last-16 game, two quarter-finals, one semi-final, and the final. While reacting to the deal, Jose said:

"talkSPORT is the fan's station and I can't wait to join in. The Euros will be a fantastic tournament and talkSPORT will capture all the excitement for fans. In my discussions with the team, I can feel their excitement for the Euros. I am thrilled to be part of it."

One would expect Mourinho to be back in football management before the start of the 2021-22 season after revealing that he will not take a break from the game following his sack this month.

Meanwhile, Briefly News reported AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy says he is happy in Durban despite talks that he’s the favourite to land the Bafana Bafana job.

The Bafana all-time top scorer says his heart is with the DStv Premiership side, AmaZulu, and could snub the national side.

McCarthy says he knowns that rumours will always be there whenever a coach is doing well as he is with AmaZulu.
