Chelsea supporters on social media loved Jose Mourinho’s antics in the aftermath of Roma’s late winner yesterday evening.
Stephan El Shaarawy sent the Stadio Olimpico crowd crazy last night thanks to a wonderfully dispatched 90th-minute winner against Sassuolo.
Whilst red and yellow bodies hugged one another in the stands, Mourinho went full Mourinho in his own merriments.
Almost instantly after El Shaarawy’s shot kissed the back of the net, the Roma boss made a beeline down the touchline to join his players in celebration.
This has become something of a trademark for the Portuguese coach, patented from his Porto days.
Blues fans have been treated to similar side line joy in the past and were just pleased that Mourinho had rediscovered his spark.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
I WILL FOREVER LOVE JOSE MOURINHO! GOAT!— Midnight(Pinned)Tweets (@LenoxCFC) September 12, 2021
Man of the Mou-moment
Life in Italy is currently treating Mourinho very well.
That victory over Sassuolo signalled his 1000th game in management, with almost a third of those spent at Chelsea.
His latest Serie A triumph sent Roma to the top of the table with a 100% record.
They are also undefeated following Mourinho’s arrival from England earlier in the summer, having won both of their UEFA Europa Conference League outings.
So far, the 58-year-old’s CV has regained its glow, having lost some of its colour whilst taking charge of Tottenham Hotspur.
Standing in the Spurs dugout never felt like a right fit; Roma and himself seemingly go hand in hand.
Guide the club to their first top-flight title for two decades and his ‘Special One’ status will be reapplied.
