Jose Mourinho Makes Tremendous Gesture By Writing Letter to Family of Shawn Kuykendall
Kudos to Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for writing this letter to the family of Shawn Kuykendall, whose son — a former MLS and American University midfielder — passed away last month due to Thuymus Cancer.
Kuykendall’s story has captivated the American soccer community and I must say it speaks volumes about Mourinho that he would send such a touching letter to the family. By the way Shawn’s dad Kurt Kuykendall was a NASL player and also went to American University.
