The ‘Special One’ is back in football less than a fortnight after his dismissal from Tottenham Hotspur.

Jose Mourinho has agreed to become a pundit for the English sports radio station talkSPORT from June onwards.

The Portuguese coach is a free agent once again after losing his job at Tottenham earlier in the month. He previously vowed to remain in football and kept his word by signing up as a pundit.

Mourinho will begin his role in June to provide expert insight into games during the summer’s European Championship, including all the England national team’s matches.

Fans will also have the unique opportunity to chat with the ‘Special One’ at the end of games over the phone.

“talkSPORT is the fan’s station and I can’t wait to join in,” said Mourinho on talkSPORT.

“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.”

Former England internationals Stuart Pearce and Trevor Sinclair, former Scotland stars Ally McCoist and Alan Brazil, and the regular talkSPORT team will join Mourinho as pundits.
