The two former Chelsea managers will face off in the sixth Soccer Aid event on June 5, to raise money for the children's charity Unicef.

Mourinho, out of work since being sacked by Chelsea last December, will be assisted by Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce, with British pop star and Soccer Aid co-founder Robbie Williams also helping out.

"I want to be the first one to win the Soccer Aid trophy for both teams, England and the Rest of the World," said the Portuguese manager .

"Sam Allardyce and I will make a very good partnership in the coming match and it will be a great feeling for Claudio to finally lose a game."
