Dozens of celebrities, former footballers, and emergency services personnel have come together at Loftus Road for a charity match to raise money for victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
With the game between Team Ferdinand and Team Shearer tightly poised at 1-1, Mourinho came on in the 60th minute for David James.
And he made his presence known within seconds.
AN IMPACTFUL GOALKEEPING DISPLAY
Mourinho pulled on the gloves for Alan Shearer’s side during the Game for Grenfell charity match at Loftus Road.
Portuguese manager left a great impression on the crowd with what was considered a charitable action by coming on to replace David James during the second half.
Manchester United manager showed that he still has not lost the competitive spirit by getting booked for time wasting just minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute.
It was a comical affair indeed, but the Red Devils boss did score a penalty in the ensuing shootout after the teams went past regulation with a 2-2 scoreline.

FANS REACTION WERE HILARIOUS
Despite being considerably shorter than many of the players around him, the Portuguese manager leaped into the air and managed to punch the ball away.
It wasn’t long before a throng of United supporters and football fans tweeted their appreciation.
“Jose Mourinho now in goal. That’s not something I expected to say today,” one said.
Some said, “Jose in goal? Think he’s trying to take David de Gea’s position.”

A WONDERFUL GESTURE
Game 4 Grenfell was a charity match played on 2 September 2017 at Loftus Road to raise money for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, which happened three months previous.
It was a good match to watch at Loftus Road. However, it was a charity match but the presence of some celebrities made the match competitive for the fans. The main focus was the effective display of Jose Mourinho as second half substitute for David James at the goal. He certainly made the match more eye catching and jolly. Manchester United fans would be hoping more from their Portuguese manager in the current season.
