Jose Mourinho has been spotted in Namibia for his off-season holiday after a long season, which resulted in triumph for his AS Roma side in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

Mourinho, dubbed “The Special One” by the media after a comment he made in 2004, travelled to Namibia on Monday, June 13 for a private holiday.

According to FARPost, Jose arrived at Hosea Kutako International Airport on Monday and is lodged at the luxurious Habitas Namibia sanctuary, about 73 kilometres east of Windhoek, the capital of the Southern African nation.

In photos posted on Twitter, sighted by Sports Brief, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid manager was captured spending his vacation in Namibia.

It is not the first time the renowned gaffer has made a trip to Africa, having previously journeyed to Cote d'Ivoire as the ambassador for the World Food Programme (WFP), working as an advocate for the organisation, raising awareness about WFP’s work and the push to reach zero hunger.

Reports from Namibia suggest Jose Mourinho will spend a week in Namibia, which has excited the supporters of Mourinho’s former English club Chelsea.

The 59-year-old Portuguese tactician further etched his name as one of the greatest coaches of all time after he guided Italian outfit AS Roma to their maiden European trophy in the Conference League.

His feat with the Gialorossi makes him the first and only manager to have won the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and the Conference League.

Mourinho chalks enviable record after Conference League success

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has set another unprecedented record in European football after guiding Italian side AS Roma to the Europa Conference League title.

It's been over 31 years since Roma’s last European final and 14 years since the club’s last trophy, but Jose Mourinho has made history with them.

The 59-year-old tactician becomes the first manager to win the Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League.
