Jose Mourinho falls over at ice hockey game

After dropping the puck to get the game under way, Mourinho attempted to make his way off the ice.

As he turned to walk off the ice, he slipped on a red carpet and fell backward before being helped up by SKA player and two-time Stanley Cup victor Pavel Datsyuk.

Yet despite them rolling out the red carpet - literally - in a bid to keep him upright, he went flying and was helped up by legendary Russian player Pavel Datsyuk.

Indeed, the former Manchester United boss bit the dust in embarrassing fashion at the weekend while attending an ice hockey game as a VIP guest in Russian Federation.

While the experience may turn Mourinho off to a career as a hockey head coach, the former United boss may not be short of suitors in the near future.

But he agreed to do some promotional work for the Russian ice hockey team in Balashikha, a town near Moscow.

Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked as United boss in December and aside from a bit of television work with beIN Sports has largely kept a low profile.

2018 was a bad year for Jose Mourinho.

He made a rare public outing back in London at the weekend for the 19th birthday of his son, Jose Jr.

United have not lost since Mourinho's dismissal, with caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer overseeing nine wins and draw once over that 10-game span.
