On 2 September 2017, a charity match was held in London to raise money for the victims of the horrific Grenfell Tower fire. The match which was held at QPR’s Loftus Road was ticketed but 2,000 complimentary tickets were to survivors, their families, volunteers, and emergency services.
Mourinho, who still has a home in west London,came on as a second half substitute for former England goalkeeper David James. Although his father was a professional keeper in Portugal, Mourinho never played professionally and his semi-professional career was as a midfielder.
In typical Mourinho style, he was the center of attention while he was on the pitch. In his opening minute he made a crucial save to maintain the 2-1 lead his team had. He then went on to be booked for time-wasting, argue with the ref about the equalizing goal being offside, and score a penalty in the shoot-out.
In the 80th minute, four survivors and two firefighters came on and received a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd.
Survivor Paul Menacer said: “We met people who want to talk and actually care about us. Someone as big as Jose Mourinho coming down and talking to us is just an amazing thing”
Speaking after the match was over, Mourinho said that he had chosen to play as a goalkeeper so he didn’t “have to run so much” and that had he had wanted to bring “something fun and different” to the charity match.
