In an almost bizarre report, a top Kenyan newspaper has reported that back in 2010, whilst still Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho fell in love with a Kenyan woman, Lelesit Silvana and has since remained in contact with the woman to this day.

It is reported that the two met when Silvana sold Jose a bracelet whilst on his visit to Kenya five years ago. The bracelet was for his wife whom he had made the visit with also with their two children.

A close family member to Silvana who requested anonymity claims Silvana was offered marriage by the Special One, an offer she strangely did not accept. The relative went further to assert that the two “lovebirds” use Poland as their rendezvous destination with Silvana’s travel receipts having been produced to authenticate this claim.

“He is so deeply in love with her. We have seen several email chats and witnessed uncountable night calls between them,” says another close family member. There really isn’t much to substantiate these supposed witness claims yet it seems too elaborate to be a fabrication.

When reached for comment, Silvana merely said, “ When the time comes, the world will know the truth.” If the truth is that a love exists between the two then Mourinho is certainly in a bit of a bother with the world. Questions will be asked.

However, many prominent figures have in the past been targeted by fame seekers who construct scandal for their own benefit. Sir Alex Ferguson was once subjected to this type of accusation by a South African woman. One does hope for his sake, his club and the football world in general, Jose is only a victim of fabrication.
