According to José Mourinho after thr match “I told everyone lies! I had been saying to the team for days that this 1000th game was not important to me… but I had an incredible fear of losing! Luckily we won and I was running like a child today because I was feeling 12 years old, not 58”.

IN Jose Mourinho’s 1,000th game as a manager, he replicated the ecstatic celebrations that introduced him to the world 17 years ago.

It was at Old Trafford where his Porto team stunned Manchester United with a late Champions League winner that led to Mourinho racing down the touchline, revealing to us all his trademark brand of fiery jubilation.

And, on Sunday night and now in charge of Serie A side Roma, the 58-year-old repeated the trick as a last-ditch strike sealed victory over Sassuolo.


The Giallorossi may not be about to win Europe’s most prestigious crown this season, unless the Europa Conference League rockets up in people’s estimations, but this goal – maintaining their 100 per cent start under their new boss – could also spark something special.

It was far from a straightforward evening at the Stadio Olimpico as Mourinho ticked over to four figures.


An opener straight off the training ground gave Roma the lead, Bryan Cristante getting the jump on the visiting defence to tuck away Lorenzo Pellegrini’s smart free-kick.

Filip Djuricic pulled Sassuolo level just before the hour mark and goalkeeper Rui Patricio was called upon multiple times to hold off the comeback.

Off the bench stepped Stephan El Shaarawy and the winger provided the magic with a pinpoint winner in injury time.
