Jose Mourinho Playing 5-A-Side Says Everything About Him
Jose Mourinho has a reputation for parking the bus when he needs to in football matches and that's clearly mirrored in the way he plays five-a-side football.
The Spurs boss has often faced criticism over the years that his style of play is boring, defensive and slow, although it's still won him a number of trophies.
In footage captured last year, the former Manchester United manager was spotted playing five-a-side football and he very much slowed play down and played backwards and sideways passes, he'd have been very proud.
Mourinho clearly has some technical ability but we're not sure he'll play any Masters Football in the near future, but please someone bring back Masters Football.
That said the two time Champions League winner could end up as a goalkeeper. Mourinho appeared in the star-studded 'Game4Grenfell' charity match at Loftus Road two years ago, organised to raise funds for survivors of the tower disaster and help community projects in the area.
Having joked that he was worth a pound more than Neymar before the game, as well as being trolled by his manager Alan Shearer in the pre-match team talk, he replaced David James in goal in the 63rd minute.
Bringing a commanding presence for 'Team Shearer', Mourinho looked perfectly competent with his feet, displaying distribution levels that David de Gea would be proud of.

The 57-year-old might be best sticking to management, even though his spell in north London hasn't started as well as hoped.
He took over at Spurs from Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked just five months after reaching the Champions League final, in November.
The side won their first three games under the new manager but their form has been up and down since with just five wins in their past 14 games, in all competitions.
The team needed a replay in the third round of the FA Cup and will need another in the fourth after Saturday's draw with Southampton.
Mourinho prides himself on winning trophies, and often does in his first season in charge, and the cup is the club's best chance, with the Champions League their only other route to success.
