The Roma manager remained on the bus outside the San Siro after being banned for one match for storming the pitch in Roma’s defeat to Atalanta two weeks ago.
But rather than remaining at home, Mourinho decided he would join the team on the bus and watch it in the San Siro car park.
No laundry baskets this time…
Fortunately for us, he filmed himself on the team bus throughout the evening.
Roma came away with a 2-1 victory – much to Jose’s delight.
Federico Dimarco had given Inter a first half lead but Paulo Dybala’s brilliant equaliser ensured the scores were level at the break.
And Chris Smalling was the hero as he headed home with 15 minutes remaining to earn a huge three points for Roma.
But what was going through Mourinho’s mind during the match?
Well, he posted numerous videos on his Instagram Story to show how he consumed the win.
It showed him sitting on the bus with his feet up as the game gets ready to kick off. All his notes can be seen on the table in front of him.
He then goes for a little walk around the bus, showing one of the drivers – presumably at half time.
Mourinho then claims “I’m going to die here” as he looks exasperated at having to remain on the bus.
The ‘Special One’ is also heard saying “Well done guys, great football” in Italian as he films himself watching the game.
Then, after the win, he’s seen celebrating wildly with Roma’s coach drivers.
The victory leaves Roma in fifth position with their fifth win in their eight Serie A matches so far. But with things so tight at the top of the table, Mourinho’s side are well within touching distance of leaders Napoli and the rest of the title hopefuls.
“Yes, I don’t know if you realise what he’s done beyond the cup,” De Rossi said. “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.
“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.”
