José Mourinho has revealed his Euro 2016 tips as well as joking about England’s penalty prowess in a new prank video for football management game Top Eleven. In the film, called José and Josie, Mourinho uses his expert knowledge to trick the presenters of The Football Daily YouTube show by having their cleaner school them in football knowledge while the cameras are rolling!
During the video, José reveals that Austria – who he calls “one of the fastest improving teams in Europe” – as his tip for the team to watch in Euro 2016, while Poland are his dark horses. José also picks David Alaba and Robert Lewandowski as key players of the tournament – all relayed by our cheeky cleaner Josie, prompting the presenters to gasp “you’re actually better at this than us – I want to hear more!”
After the ruse is revealed, he goes on to joke that while penalties are more about managers than players, he is a “disaster with penalties” and that he “always loses too – I am like England!” He even mentioned he may take Josie to his next club, so she may be packing her bags for Manchester…
The video has been produced by Nordeus, creators of Top Eleven which is the world’s most popular online sports game. Top Eleven is rolling out new Associations features from Tuesday 7th June.
