“I told everyone lies” – Mourinho celebrates 1000th game like a ‘child’ [Video]

Jose Mourinho was highly ecstatic after marking his 1000th professional game as a manager with a win.

The great Portuguese had initially said the milestone wasn’t of importance to him, but when El Sharawy struck in stoppage time to give Roma a huge 2–1 win over Sassuolo in the Serie A on Sunday, the 58-year-old ran down the touchline and celebrated like a “child.”

“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.”

It’s Mourinho’s first season with Roma and they’ve done well to maintain a 100% winning start to the Serie A season. They are top of the table with 3 wins from their opening 3 games – scoring nine goals and conceding just twice in the process.

Mourinho, who has won 33 trophies so far in his managerial career, has recorded 639 wins, 198 draws and 162 losses.
