Roma boss Jose Mourinho got behind the wheel momentarily before the open-top bus parade
Mourinho was in a delightful mood before the parade even began as he drove the bus momentarily, and a number of his players could be heard cheering him on.
He almost crashed the bus before finally parking up, having left the team’s goalkeeping coach, Nuno Santos, behind.
Mourinho has developed a reputation for ‘parking the bus’ in games due to the defensive tactics he has used throughout his time on the touchline.
Roma published a video on their Twitter account with the bus going past the famous Colosseum, with Mourinho waving to fans with a massive grin on his face and put his hand over his heart.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport , Mourinho was also seen singing along with Roma supporters.
Giallorossi fans started a chant of ‘Whoever doesn’t jump supports Lazio’ and Mourinho was seen singing along.

At Porto, he won a UEFA Cup and Champions League. He also won Europe’s premier competition at Inter in 2010 and then the Europa League during this time at Manchester United.
The trophy ensures that he has won at least one trophy at every club, apart from Tottenham, since his time at Porto.
The parade ended with a stage presentation where the trophy was displayed to the fans in attendance.
