Mourinho to earn £1.17million in Russia


Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, will earn £1.71million as a pundit during this year’s World cup in Russia.

Mourinho will pocket £400,000 a day as a pundit for about four days.

The Portuguese, who was being chased by the BBC and ITV, has signed up for Russia’s international news channel RT, who have no live rights.

“I am looking forward to attending the World Cup in Russia and sharing my insights,” the United boss said.

The agreement requires Mourinho to be in Moscow at the start of the World Cup for those lucrative four days, doing a variety of punditry.

Then he will work for RT on World Cup final day, but that will be done via a satellite link-up with Manchester.

Mourinho was paid more than £1million, when he provided his views for Yahoo in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
