Jose Mourinho posed for a snap with Robbie Williams ahead of Sunday's Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho was all smiles as he posed for a picture with Robbie Williams ahead of this Sunday’s Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese coach has been appointed as Manchester United’s new manager after he signed a three-year contract with the club last week.

Mourinho is set to watch on from the stands at Old Trafford on Sunday at the charity match, which raises money for Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation.

And the former Chelsea manager looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with Williams and sent a message to the former Take That star.

Mourinho shared the photo above, taken at Twickenham, on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “With my friends at @socceraid.

“Congratulations to Robbie for organising such a great event again this year.”
