Jose Mourinho is set to make his first public appearance on Thursday since being sacked as the manager of Manchester United.

Aside from being seen at a Vitoria Setubal match in Portugal, the 55-year-old has kept a low profile following his dismissal from Old Trafford.

But beIN Sports have recruited Mourinho to appear as a pundit for two matches this week.

He will analyse the Asian Cup match between Saudi Arabia and Qatar on Thursday.

Then, two days later, the Portuguese coach will share his thoughts on Arsenal against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

Everyone is eager to hear what Mourinho has to say about his Man United sacking as well as his thoughts on their turnaround under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But, unfortunately, he won’t be given the chance to discuss his former club.

Mourinho won't be allowed to talk about Man Utd

According to The Times, Mourinho has been gagged by the Red Devils.

The club inserted a confidentiality cause into his £15 million severance package upon his dismissal and he won’t be allowed to talk about Man United during both appearances on beIN Sports.

As a result, the broadcaster have reduced their fee. Knowing that Mourinho can’t spill anything about his sacking, beIN Sports will pay him just £60,000 per game.

When you consider that Russia Today paid the former Real Madrid boss £1m for five punditry appearances during the World Cup, £120,000 seems like a low figure.

Man United's lawyers have already warned that they will be watching Mourinho this week to make sure he follows the guidelines.

Mourinho was paid handsomely following his exit from Man United so he won’t worry about the fee being cut.

But it’s a shame supporters will miss out on hearing his thoughts one month on from his sacking.

Solskjaer has come in and he’s immediately lifted the mood at the club by releasing the shackles that held Paul Pogba and co. back.

United have won all six matches that Solskjaer has overseen, including that impressive 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, and confidence is sky-high.
