Jose Mourinho will be taking “blood money” by working for Russian state-backed channel RT during the World Cup, according to Chris Bryant MP.

It was announced that the Manchester United boss would be appearing on the channel last week, a day after an ex-Russian spy and his daughter were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury.

Prime Minister Theresa May says it is “highly likely” Russia is responsible.

Bryant has previously called for RT’s “propaganda” to be banned in the UK.

Mourinho has refused to answer questions on his involvement with the channel – formerly known as Russia Today – since last week’s poisoning.

The Times reported that he will be paid at least £1m
