Jose Moringotto: Alexey Filippov / RIA Novosti
Member of the British Parliament from the district of Rhondda Chris Bryant has condemned the decision of the head coach “Manchester United” Jose Mourinho to cooperate with the Russian TV channel RT in an expert during the world Cup 2018. About it reports The Independent.
“In my opinion, it’s blood money to be paid directly from Russia’s state coffers,” said Bryant.
The MP made these words on the background of the scandal with the poisoning of the spy-defector Sergei Skripal and his daughter. British authorities are considering the option of boycotting the championship, if Moscow will be involved in the poisoning.
2 March it became known that Mourinho will arrive in Moscow to participate in the special issues of the RT channel dedicated to the 2018 world Cup. The specialist will share with the audience expert opinion and forecasts of results of matches of the tournament. According to the Times, in a five days expert the Portuguese will receive one million pounds (about 78 million). Suggestions for RT Mourinho rejected the invitation of the British broadcasters BBC BBC and ITV.
