Jose Mourinho Appointed UN Ambassador

Jose Mourinho has been appointed as an Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).
Mourinho will use his status to raise awareness about WFP's life-saving work and champion the Zero Hunger Challenge, which aims to eliminate hunger in our lifetimes, and has said he will visit Africa over the summer to lend his support to the campaign.

'Supporting the work of the World Food Programme on the frontlines of hunger is a personal decision about a cause that is very close to the hearts of me and my family,' the Chelsea manager said.
'I have a big passion for football but I have a big passion for everything I do. If I don't have it, I don't do it, it's simple. So to accept this opportunity I do it not just with pride but also with passion.

'I am going immediately where the problems are, where the kids with hunger are. I am not going to be a man of press conferences; I want to be a man of the field. During my holiday period I am going to Africa and I hope I do my part well.'

The Portuguese joins a list of international celebrities and athletes including Drew Barrymore, Christina Aguilera and Kaka.
