Jose Mourinho has decided to get a tattoo that ‘only he can have’ in a bid to celebrate all the clubs he won European honours with.
The 59-year-old lifted the Europa Conference League with AS Roma last season after a first-half goal from Nicolo Zaniolo sealed a historic win for the Serie A outfit.
That narrow victory against Feyenoord at the Arena Kombetare helped Mourinho become the the first manager in history to win all three UEFA competitions.

He then lifted the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010 before winning the Europa League at Manchester United in 2017 – an achievement he labelled the “most important” of his coaching career
To celebrate his European haul over the years, Mourinho has recently decided to get a ‘unique’ inking of his achievements.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss opened up about his decision to get the tattoo.
Alongside the design of the tattoo, he wrote: “This is my tattoo. The joy of the Roman people led me to do it. Then I thought about something special, something that would honour all the clubs where I won European competitions.
“At the same time, I wanted a unique tattoo, one that, so far, I am the only one who can have it…
“Alberto showed me some proposals, I just changed a few details. Here is my tattoo.”
Last week, Mourinho teased the ‘secret’ on his arm in a video on his official Instagram page. “Here is the second part of my secret,” he said. “In a few more days, I will show you.”
Mourinho has achieved a great deal during his 22-year career in management.
But for him, guiding Manchester United to second place in the Premier League was one of the best in his career because people didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes.
“If I tell you, for example, that I consider one of the best jobs of my career was to finish second with Man United in the Premier League, you will say, ‘this guy is crazy,'” Mourinho told BeIN SPORTS.
“‘He won 25 titles and he is saying that a second position was one of his best achievements?'”
“I keep saying this because people don’t know what is going on behind the scenes. And sometimes we, in this side of the cameras, analyse things with a different perspective.”
