Fair play to Jose Mourinho. He's keeping himself busy after his departure from Manchester United.

The 56-year-old left Old Trafford in December and has made sure he's occupied enough to distract his attention from the record-breaking run of his successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The team have won nine of their ten matches since Mourinho's departure while he has been off appearing on beIN sports as a pundit alongside former Sky Sports duo Richard Keys and Andy Gray.

He made a rare public appearance in London last weekend, celebrating his son Jose Jnr's 19th birthday at Italian restaurant Harry's Dolce Vita in Knightsbridge.

After that, it seems he was off to Russia, where he has been filmed doing some promotional work for ice-hockey team Avangard Omsk.

Putting his signature on a piece of paper in front of an advertising board, on first glance it may appear the club have landed themselves a new boss but no, he's just putting his signature on some glossy photos.

The photos can reportedly be collected by fans arriving at Avangard's game against SKA.

The team are curerntly having to play in the Russian town of Balashikha after their home ice was ruled to be structurally unsafe.
