It was the Portuguese tactician’s 1000th game, but his side had to battle for the win after their opponents put up a formidable fight at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma took the lead courtesy of a Bryan Cristante strike as the player got the jump on the visiting defence to tuck away Lorenzo Pellegrini's smart free-kick.

It then became 1-1 following a Filip Djuricic effort just before the hour mark and goalkeeper Rui Patricio was called upon multiple times to hold off the comeback.

Stephan El Shaarawy came off the bench and the winger provided the magic with a pinpoint winner in injury time.

Eldor Shomurodov's knockdown fell for nicely El Shaarawy, who placed a curling effort off the inside of the post and into the opposite corner of the goal.

It sparked incredible scenes as Mourinho raced down the touchline to join them and even jumped on striker Tammy Abraham as he got stuck into the mass of limbs.

Roma continue impressive run in Serie A season

All seems to be going on well with Roma in Serie A after Jose Mourinho's men recorded a resounding 4-0 win over newly-promoted Salernitana earlier.

The Portuguese then decided to have a delicious pizza on his way home aboard a train with his coaching staff back to the Italian capital, Rome.

The manager’s quest to landing a Scudetto for his new employers is going on as planned after picking up their second victory of the campaign.

Mourinho reacts to Ronaldo's man Utd return earlier reported that Mourinho was asked about the five-time Ballon d'Or's return to United during his prematch conference earlier this month.

The manager said:

“The only thing I say and it seems basic and logical to me, if Juve are happy, if Cristiano is happy and United are happy, then it’s the perfect business.
There’s no need to talk about Cristiano. For 20 years he has written history, there’s nothing to comment.”
