His frantic celebrations in the round of 16 tie against Manchester United have become one of the most memorable moments in his long and successful career.
The 'Special One' would move to Chelsea months later where he enjoyed back-to-back Premier League titles, before further success at Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Having won the league title for a third time with Chelsea last season, the Blues were placed in pot one for the group stage draw and Mourinho will be hoping it gives them a platform for success in the competition.
