Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho slips up at ice hockey game

Jose Mourinho was left with egg on his face as he took a tumble after conducting a ceremonial start in an worldwide professional ice hockey league fixture.

In the days since his sacking, Mourinho has been keeping busy, working as a guest analyst on beIN Sports, before now making his way to Russian Federation where he seen was doing work for Kontinental Hockey League club Avangard Omsk.

You do some promotional work at an ice hockey tournament of course.

The KHL had posted a series of pictures of Mourinho, sacked by United in mid-December as they sat 19 points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool at the time, taking in the surroundings and greeting players. Videos of the 56-year-old Portuguese manager falling on a red carpet on the ice rink in Balashikha went viral on social media after the accident.

And now, the Portuguese appears to be working for Avangard Omsk, a Siberia hockey team.

Organisers rolled out the red carpet for the former Manchester United boss, who was invited to drop the puck at the start of the game between SKA vs Avangard.

Avangard play their home games in the city just outside Moscow after their usual arena was found to be unsafe for hosting games. The miserable man who used to manage Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's mighty Manchester United side.
