Former Manchester United Jose Mourinho will feature on beIN SPORTS’ coverage of El Clasico when Real Madrid and Barcelona go head to head in LaLiga on March 2.
The Portuguese served as an assistant at Barca and went on to become head coach at Madrid in 2010, maintaining the hostile relationship between the two clubs during his three years in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Chelsea boss was in the studio for beIN as they showed the Blues’ defeat at Arsenal last month with the news on his El Clasico analysis announced by BeIn chief executive Yousef Al-Obaidly.
In a statement Yousef said: “We are delighted to welcome Jose Mourinho back to beIN SPORTS to entertain millions of viewers with his footballing genius once again across the 24 countries of the Middle East and North Africa.
“Jose’s understanding of the game is second to none and given his deep and intriguing history with both Real Madrid and Barcelona, there is no better or more compelling analyst to watch.”
Mourinho won LaLiga with Madrid in the 2011-12 season, setting a record points tally of 100 that was matched by Barca in the following campaign.
Barca lead the league this term, with Madrid nine points back in third after 24 matches. The two sides also meet in the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie on Wednesday, with the opening clash having ended 1-1.
