Football manager José Mourinho has become RT’s latest signing. He’ll offer his unique insight into the game for the channel’s FIFA 2018 World Cup Russia special coverage.
The outstanding coach will be in Moscow to share his expert analysis and predictions for the tournament with the network’s vast global audience.
“I am very happy to join the team at RT. I am looking forward to attending the World Cup in Russia this summer and sharing my insights into the games,” Mourinho said of the partnership with RT.
“We continue to put together the RT dream team. Now we have a coach,” said RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan of Mourinho’s acquisition.
The charismatic coach will take the reins of RT’s specially-assembled World Cup team and will link up with legendary United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, who became part of the RT team in late 2017.
In the lead up to Russia 2018, RT has launched a special multimedia project dedicated to all things World Cup, comprising a website complete with match schedules, player info and current standings, as well as news and exclusive interviews with sports stars.
The site is available in Russian, English, Spanish and Arabic. During the tournament, the site will provide live text commentary of the games and stories from RT reporters.
