Jose Mourinho Gets to Play Pope in Animation

Jose Mourinho, who calls himself the “Special One, may soon change it to the “Only One”, and who can begrudge him, really?

After landing his dream job by becoming Manchester United manager, the self-styled Portuguese has turned his hands to films where he gets to play the Pope, no less.

The 53-year-old former Chelsea boss has agreed a deal to lend his voice to the character of Pope Francis in an animated film due for release in 2017 for the centenary of the apparition of the Virgin Mary in Fatima, Portugal.

Mourinho will be the voice of the Argentine pontiff in Portuguese, English, Spanish and Italian – “the languages of the countries where he (Mourinho) has already been a champion”, said the Portuguese production company Imaginew.

The use of Mourinho in the animated film “has already received the approval of the Vatican”, said the production company.

Mou as Pope? Beats the imagination!
