Soccer Aid: Claudio Ranieri To Face Jose Mourinho

Soccer Aid match: Claudio Ranieri’s Rest of the World to face Jose Mourinho’s England.

Jose Mourinho is set to return to football management on June 5 at Old Trafford.

He will be taking charge of England against Claudio Ranieri’s Rest of the World in the sixth Soccer Aid match to raise money for Unicef.

Former Chelsea boss will be assisted by Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce and singer Robbie Williams.

“I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World,” said the Portuguese, who coached the Rest of the World to a 4-2 victory in the 2014 event.

“Sam and I will make a very good partnership and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a match!

“I hope the organisers can help me now with an English passport!”

Leicester City manager Ranieri added: “It is a great honour that Robbie Williams has asked me to manage the Rest of the World XI and I’m looking forward to helping them defend their title.”
