Jose Mourinho Leaves Real Madrid To Join Fulham On One-Year Contract
Fulham have pulled off a significant coup today in announcing that Jose Mourinho has joined the club on a one-year deal having left Real Madrid in the summer.
Jose Mario Mourinho, the 14-year-old son of Chelsea manager Jose Snr, came to the end of his contract at Real Madrid’s Canillas youth side and, following a successful trial, the young goalkeeper has now joined the Cottagers on a 12-month contract.
According to MARCA, Mou Jnr was given the option of joining his old man at Chelsea but, rather than spend a year with his dad’s beady gaze fixed upon him, opted to sign for cross town rivals - Fulham’s U14 side instead.
Jose Mario’s got good genetics when it comes to this goalkeeping lark too, what with his granddad being Felix Mourinho and all – i.e, Vitoria Setubal’s long-serving no.1 throughout the late 1950s and 60s who went on to collect one Portugal cap in 1972.
