Jose Mourinho continues to steal the show in Italy as the ex-Tottenham manager secured a dramatic late win for AS Roma last night.
The Serie A side had to wait until stoppage time before Stephan El Shaarawy bagged a beauty to secure the three points for the Roman club. Mourinho has now won his first league games with Roma.
It was also a special night for the three-time Premier League winner, with the game being Mourinho’s 1000th professional game as a manager. The Portuguese coach is one of the most decorated figures in football since beginning his career way back in 2000.
Indeed, it was a fitting way for the ‘Special One’ to wrap up this huge milestone in his career. Early signs with Roma suggest that Mourinho could flourish for the Italian club.
The signing of Tammy Abraham appears to have been a shrewd one, with the former Chelsea man being one of Roma’s key players in their opening three games.
And on social media, Tottenham fans were loving what Mourinho did after El Shaarawy scored his late winner. The Portuguese manager was caught on camera running down the touchline to celebrate with the players.
Indeed, it was a perfect way for Mourinho to cap 1000 games as a professional manager in Europe. And Spurs fans on social media loved his mental celebration.
Here’s what some fans had to say about Mourinho’s antics for Roma last night on Twitter…
