Jose Mourinho and Mo Farah have had a Carragher/Henry moment




Jose Mourinho really stole the show at the Game 4 Grenfell on Saturday afternoon at Loftus Road, providing several viral moments at the charity game.

The match was organised to raise funds for those affected by the tragic June 14 blaze, in which at least 80 people died. Current and former professional footballers, and stars from the world of entertainment, took part in the game, and the two teams were managed by Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand, the former Newcastle United and England strikers.

Mourinho was on Shearer’s team, and was subjected to some dressing room banter beforehand.

Shearer called the Manchester United manager the “second greatest manager in history”, after Alex Ferguson, which was a compliment more than a playful jibe. Mourinho showed he’s also not a bad goalkeeper when he entered the game in the second-half, and he’s without any doubt the number one proponent of football’s dark arts.

The United manager was booked for time-wasting, which is undoubtedly peak-Mourinho.

The United manager slotted away a penalty in the shoot-out like he’s Alan Shearer.

Jose had taken part in dressing room banter, got booked for time wasting (in a charity match) and dispatched a penalty like a seasoned striker. However, he wasn’t finished yet. The United manager recreated a viral moment from 2015, when Brendan Rodgers was sacked by Liverpool.

You know the one.

Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry recreated that moment earlier this week and it appears Jose was watching. He and Mo Farah had a Carragher/Henry moment of their own following Saturday’s game.
