Jose Mourinho Jr joins Fulham

by Kevin Coleman

We’re shocked Jose Mourinho hasn’t produced his own team of match-killing negative footballers, but he has got himself a little goalkeeper in the form of Jose Mario Mourinho.

The 14-year-old will join Fulham’s youth setup after impressing on a month-long trial. He previously played for the Real Madrid youth group, but follows his old man to London with local rivals Fulham. Rather than compete for places with Petr Cech and soon enough, Thibaut Courtois, he fancies his chances usurping Maarten Stekelenburg.

If he ever makes it he’ll join an underwhelming list of manager-son-player combos, with Steve Bruce’s Alex, Sir Alex Ferguson’s boy Darren and Kenny Dalglish’s son Paul.
