Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will host a television show covering the Champions League, it has been announced.

Mourinho, sacked by United in December, will host "On the Touchline with Jose Mourinho" for Moscow-based network RT.

He did work for the channel during the World Cup in Russia and his new fortnightly show begins early next month.

"The show will offer unique analysis from the Portuguese managerial great on all the week's Champions League action, as well as special insight into the biggest talking points in the world of football," an RT statement said.

It will be broadcast for the first time after the first set of round-of-16 second-leg matches have finished on March 7 and run until the final on June 1.

Mourinho has also worked for Qatar-based channel beIN Sports, on which he defended his two-and-a-half-year spell in charge of United.
