Jose Mourinho isn’t shy.


The former Chelsea boss has risked his legendary reputation by electing to take on the managerial role at Manchester United for the upcoming season, and doesn’t seem too bothered by it all.

For the upcoming edition of FIFA this Autumn, FIFA 17 will feature managers on the touchline for the first time ever, and Mourinho’s return to Premier League management means he’ll be part of the legendary series.

The new move was announced at the E3 expo in Los Angeles earlier this week, when the EA bloke on the stage started talking about the new features in FIFA 17.

He mentioned that the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger will all be prowling the touchlines on the latest edition of the game, which hits shelves in September.

The presenter talked about being a Liverpool fan (it’s apparently going to be their year, if you hadn’t already heard), and described Guardiola, Wenger and Klopp as “second to none” during his presentation.

Cue Mourinho’s entrance:

The former Real Madrid manager was clearly in on the joke, although knowing Mourinho’s rivalry with Guardiola, it can’t have been easy for the manager to be included in the three featured managers.

Other new features in FIFA 17 include a story mode, where you play as youngster Alex Hunter, who breaks through from Manchester United’s reserve team into the first team and goes on to become a superstar *cough Marcus Rashford, cough*.

The normal Career Mode still exists though, so you can always take over as Manchester United manager yourself and send Jose back to the job centre, which will never cease to please.
