Jose Mourinho records himself watching Roma match on team bus after touchline ban

Jose Mourinho recorded himself watching Roma’s match against Inter Milan on the team bus as he is serving his touchline ban. 

The Roma boss was handed a one match touchline ban after he marched onto the pitch to protest a referee’s decision against Atalanta two weeks ago. 

Although he could have stayed at home, Mourinho chose to join his travelling squad and instead watched the game on the team bus outside the San Siro.

To Mourinho’s delight, his players produced a brilliant come back to win the game 2-1. 

Federico Dimarco gave the home side the lead on the half hour mark. Nine minutes later, Roma’s summer marquee signing Paulo Dybala levelled the scoring. 

In the 75th minute, former Manchester United man Chris Smalling headed in the winner as Roma took home all three points. 

Throughout the match, Mourinho posted a series of stories on his offical Instagram account as he watched from the bus. 

Prior to kick off, the Portuguese posted a video which showed him with his feet up with his notes on the table in front of him. 

Mourinho was heard saying: “I’m going to die here” as he looks frustrated at having to watch from afar. He also said: “Well done guys, great football” in Italian as he watched his team secure a huge victory.

As a result, Roma are now fifth in the Serie A table after recording five wins out of their first eight matches. They will be looking to build on their Europa Conference League success from last season as they look to mount a title challenge.

Former Roma player Daniele De Rossi has praised Mourinho for bringing the club’s fans together. 

He said, per Football Italia: “Yes, I don’t know if you realise what he’s done beyond the cup. 

“The stadium is always full with 60,000 fans, whether it goes well or badly, whether he plays against the first or the last in the table.”

De Rossi added: “It seems strange to me that this is a coincidence, then what you want between the cup and cheap tickets. But he has brought all the Roma fans together, he must be valued more than the results. 

“Then we expect him to do great things, this year the team looks strong. Will I be at the stadium with Inter? No, absolutely not.”
