Stick to soccer, Jose.

Renowned soccer manager Jose Mourinho was in Russia on Monday to check out a KHL hockey game between SKA St. Petersburg and Avangard Omsk. The Special One was invited to do the ceremonial puck drop before the game and learned the hard way just how slippery ice can be.  

Mourinho was eventually helped to his feet by SKA captain Pavel Datsyuk and Omsk captain Evgeny Medvedev made sure the coach didn’t forget to take the puck with him as a souvenir. 

The moment also produced this beautiful renaissance painting of a photograph.

Footage shot from the stands makes it even better, since you can hear the crowd go wild when Mourinho takes his tumble. 

Somewhere, Paul Pogba is having a good laugh at his old boss’s expense.
