Jose Mourinho slips on the ice at Russian ice hockey game
Jose has been doing promo work for Russian ice hockey league KHL
Since leaving Manchester United, Jose Mourinho has taken a break from management. He joined Richard Keys and Andy Gray in the United Arab Emirates on BeIN Sport, sounding off about the Premier League, and revealing the true story behind the infamous laundry basket tale.
On Monday however, it emerged that he was also lending his talents to some promo work for a Russian ice hockey team.
Mourinho was given the honour of preceding over the opening face-off of the KHL tie between SKA and Avangard. Though things did not go exactly to plan, as when he backed away, he slipped on the red carpet and toppled to the ground.

A video posted on social media earlier on Monday showed Mourinho at a press conference.
Posted on Twitter by journalist Ruslan Abushkin, the video shows Mourinho at an ice hockey stadium in the town of Balashikha.
The stadium appears to be the Balashikha Arena, which hosts Kontinental Hockey League matches.
From what can be gathered in the video, Jose is signing photo after photo of himself, which according to Abushkin, could be collected prior to the game between Avangard and SKA on Monday.
