Iconic Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is set to make his third visit to Ghana next month.
The Portuguese coach who commands a large following in the West African country will be arriving to attend a charity event organized by star midfielder Michael Essien.
The former Chelsea manager has already made two prior visits to Ghana.
His first visit was in 2007 when he arrived with a Chelsea team for a charity event.
He again visited Ghana during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations which Ghana hosted.
Mourinho is now expected to join a host of world class stars to arrive in Ghana next month for the Michael Essien charity game in Accra.

The match dubbed: ?Game of Hope and Inspiration? is to raise funds for five charities yet to be determined.
The game will be played on June 8 at the Accra Sports Stadium which will see the World XI battle Africa XI.
A musical concert featuring American superstar Wyclef Jean will follow the charity game at the same venue.
This will be the second time the Ghana international is organizing such a huge charity event since taking up an appointment as an African Union ambassador for peace.
