Mourinho Mobbed By His Son Jose Jr On The Pitch As He Celebrates Man Utd’s Europa League Triumph

Published on:

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho was elated and initiated Manchester United’s celebrations as he danced with his son after clinching the Europa League trophy.

United gained the lead in the 18th minute when Paul Pogba found the net in the 18th minute.

In the second-half Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the Red Devils lead just three minutes after the game restarted.

Mourinho silenced his critics after clinching the Europa League that helped Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League – and he made it more special as he danced with his son.

The Portuguese boss was at first thrown in the air by his coaching staff before his son Jose Jr took to the pitch.

The father-son duo danced in each other’s’ arms before falling to the ground as they laughed in joy and hugged each other.

Mourinho shouted his lungs out in joy after the final whistle.

He also pointed four fingers towards the sky – showing the number of European cups he has won in his managerial career.

Earlier in his career, Mourinho clinched the Uefa Cup and Champions League with Porto and the Champions League again with Inter Milan in 2010 before Wednesday’s Europa League triumph with United.

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, who lifted the twentieth major title in his managerial career – accentuated that his debut season at Manchester United has been a huge success.

This includes – eight league titles in four countries, the four European cups and another eight domestic cups including the FA Cup, Coppa Italia and Copa del Rey.

After the match Mourinho went on to analyse United’s performance and ended up launching a dig at rivals.

He said: “It was a very difficult season and a very good season.”

“You would prefer it this way than finish fourth, or third or second.”

“It’s an important title.”

“Since the beginning we had this in our minds and the way we played the final was very intelligent.”

“We knew exactly how to win.”

“If [the other team] want to press the ball all the time, you don’t play short.”

“If [we are] dominant in the air, we go long.”

“There are lots of poets in football… but poets don’t win many titles.”

“We knew where we better, where they were better than us.”

“We tried to kill their good qualities and exploit their weaknesses.”

“We did that from the first minute and totally deserved to win the trophy.”
