We all know Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest managers in world football. But did you know he’s also a goalkeeper?

Well, for those of you watching the Game4Grenfell will now know that the ‘Special One’ is natural between the stick...kind of.

Mourinho spent his Saturday at the charity match at Loftus Road and with around 25 minutes remaining, decided he wanted to get involved.

But instead of taking to the field, the Manchester United manager wanted to replace David James in goal - much to the former England ‘keeper’s bemusement.

And within seconds, Mourinho was involved.

As a corner was swung in, Mourinho came out and produced a superb punch.

Take a look:

David de Gea take note!

And he got involved once again when the ball when out for a goal-kick.

Mourinho gets booked

Instead of fetching the ball, Mourinho decided to take a few selfies with the fans.

The referee was having none of it, though, and booked him for time wasting with his side 2-1 up.

Brilliant.

But Mourinho wasn’t able to keep a clean sheet as Stan Collymore and Kasabian’s Chris Edwards combined to equalise - with Mourinho not covering himself in much glory.

Watch: Mourinho concedes

Take a look at the goal he conceded:

And with the match ending 2-2, it went straight to penalties meaning Mourinho had the chance to be a hero.

However, he couldn't get near any of penalties and conceded all five! However, he did score a penalty of his own.

Twitter reacts

And here is how Twitter reacted to Mourinho's cameo. They absolutely loved it:

Mourinho's goalkeeping woes sums up a pretty tough day for the former Chelsea manager. Even before the game, Mourinho was mocked by Alan Shearer in the team-talk.

"Last night, when I heard the greatest manager ever was going to join us," the former England striker announced to his players.

"I’ve got to apologise – Sir Alex [Ferguson] isn’t here.

"But you’ve got the second greatest manager ever."
