Jose Mourinho fouls Olly Murs at Soccer Aid 2014 by Moezsf

Jose Mourinho's hasn't got where he is today by being charitable and he certainly showed that during Sunday's Soccer Aid match.

Mourinho was managing 'The Rest Of The World' against England in the biannual clash at Old Trafford where celebrities team up with football legends to raise money for charity.

After seeing pop star Olly Murs cause all kinds of damage against his side in the early stages of the match, Mourninho decided to run onto the pitch and take Murs out.

He went back to the dugout with a devilish smile on his face and to be fair to a bewildered looking Murs, he took the incident in the good humour that was clearly intended.

It turned out to be a satisfying night for Mourinho as he then watched his side win 4-2.

A hat-trick from AC Milan manager Clarence Seedorf helped his side to a 4-2 victory against Sam Allardyce's England.

Despite the game being played in order to raise money for charity Unicef, it wasn't all good-natured between and one potentially nasty incident provided another talking point.

Co-founder and TV presenter Jonathan Wilkes and former Netherlands midfielder Edgar Davids were involved in a bust-up during the second half after a mistimed tackle from the ex-professional.

Wilkes reacted to the challenge and squared up to the 41-year-old, only for Davids to thrust his forearm into his opponent's face.

He got his revenge shortly afterwards when he picked Davids' shinpad off the Old Trafford turf and launched it over the Dutchman's head. So, all’s well that ends well, clearly.

But the real moment of the day belonged to Mourinho, who may want to start employing his on-pitch strategy again once the Premier League season is back up and running.

Soccer Aid has raised £12 million in aid of UNICEF UK through ticket sales and donations since it was set up by Robbie Williams and Jonathan Wilkes back in 2006.
