The Serie A giants AS Roma fired the former manager of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in January, and he hasn’t had a full-time job in football since.

When Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United was being reviewed and Chelsea and Mauricio Pochettino parted ways earlier this month, there were rumours of a Premier League comeback.

Now, Mourinho, 61, will be a part of TNT Sports’ coverage of the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

He will offer his expert opinion on the biggest match of the season.

The official X account of TNT Sports confirmed the news and welcomed Mourinho for their coverage of the Champions League final.

Mourinho, who oversaw Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013, will be well-versed with the La Liga club.

Alongside him will be regular analysts Steve McManaman, Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand.

Since Porto’s 2004 Champions League victory, Mourinho has come to be associated with the trophy.

And he won another European Cup six years later, this time with Inter Milan, whom he helped to a historic treble.

Mourinho is the only manager to win all three UEFA recognised competitions in the history.

Jose Mourinho has experience of European success

He added to his Champions League success by winning the Europa League with Manchester United and the Europa Conference League with Roma.

The Spanish giants defeated Manchester City, the defending European champions, in this year’s quarterfinals before narrowly defeating Bayern Munich in the semifinals.

Dortmund, on the other hand, are trying to surprise everyone after faltering to a disappointing fifth-place finish in the Bundesliga.

Their semifinal win against Kylian Mbappe’s Paris Saint-Germain would give them hope of upsetting Real Madrid in the final at Wembley.
