Jose Mourinho‘s teenage son has signed student terms with Fulham after receiving international clearance from Fifa.
Jose junior has been playing for Fulham Under-14s all season but was unable to officially join the London club until he had cleared a red-tape hurdle.
Under Fifa rules, clubs must provide evidence to the world governing body that a youngster from overseas is recruited for ‘non footballing reasons’.
Mourinho’s son had previously been playing for Real Madrid’s Canillas team while his father was manager at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Jose junior impressed during a five-week trial with Fulham at the start of the season but did not sign until the club satisfied Fifa last month that the schoolboy moved to England solely because of his famous father’s job.
The teenage goalkeeper has now penned student terms, which entails three training sessions during the week and a weekend match.
His father is understood to be a regular visitor to Fulham’s Motspur Park headquarters to watch his son in action for the Under-14s.
Mourinho approached the academy of Chelsea’s west London rivals last summer about giving an opportunity to Jose junior because he wanted his son close to the family home in London while avoiding accusations of nepotism had he joined the Stamford Bridge youth set-up.
