Roma head coach Jose Mourinho made a surprise appearance in the music video of British rapper Stormzy ‘Mel Made Me Do It’.
Some iconic quotes from Mourinho are featured in the song from a famous interview he once gave during his time in the Premier League.
The Portuguese boss has played a starring role in Stormzy’s new single as he marks his return, sending fans of both into a frenzy.
The seven-minute song was released on Thursday evening, and the clip featuring Mourinho is already going viral on social media.
The 59-year-old features in an all-black suit with Stormzy and several members of his crew, posing with his finger to his lips – as numerous journalists have seen at his press conferences over the years.
The section featuring Mourinho begins approximately 5minutes 10 seconds into the song, with Stormzy rapping: “You love to talk about the old days, them man are old like Annie, are you okay? I prefer not to speak like I’m Jose.”
A sound bite is then played of Mourinho’s memorable: “I prefer really not to speak, if I speak I am in big trouble,” followed by several shots of the coach shushing the camera.
Football fans flocked to social media when the clip went live, with one user tweeting: “Whoever does Jose’s bookings or PR deserves a pay rise.”
Another wrote:”This is football and grime heritage.“ One football fan couldn’t help but heap the praise on Mourinho, saying: “The best character the game has ever seen. The King.”
Last season Mourinho led Roma to a first ever European title when the Serie A giants pipped Feyenoord 1-0 in the first-ever final of the Europa Conference League.
He won the Champions League at Porto (2004) and Inter Milan (2010) and also won the Europa League with Porto (2003) and Manchester United 2017).
Also at Chelsea, he won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Community Shield.
