After all these years, Jose Mourinho finally got to park the bus for real.
The legendary Portuguese manager was filmed behind the wheels of AS Roma’s bus shortly before the parade got underway after the Giallorossi won the Europa Conference League.
Thousands of fans lined the streets of their historic city after Roma lifted their first European trophy for 61 years.
Roma won the Europa Conference League thanks to a 1-0 victory over Dutch side Feyenoord on Wednesday evening.
Nicolo Zaniolo scored the only goal of the game midway through the first half.
The scenes at full-time showed just how much this meant to everyone associated with Roma, including Mourinho, who has won it all during his illustrious managerial career.
The 59-year-old struggled to hold back the tears during an emotional post-match interview. It may have ‘only’ been the Europa Conference League but it definitely mattered.

And Mourinho, who will always be linked with the biggest jobs in world football, confirmed that he’ll be staying at the Stadio Olimpico.
“We made history today, there are many things in my head right now,” he told Sky Sports, per Goal, after Roma’s win over Feyenoord.
“I have great respect for all the clubs I worked with, but today I am 100 per cent Romanista, because these fans are incredible.
“I will stay at AS Roma, no doubt, even if some offers will come. I want to stay here.”
