The Portuguese coach celebrated his latest European milestone by getting a tattoo.

Jose Mourinho has got himself a tattoo to mark his successes in UEFA competitions in Europe.

The AS Roma manager rolled back the sleeve of his white T-shirt and posed for the camera to share pictures of the tattoo on his right arm at the weekend on social media.

The artwork has the Champions League trophy sandwiched between the Europa League and Europa Conference League cups.

‘I am the only one who can have it’

Mourinho decided to get himself inked after leading Roma to Europa Conference League success in May. In doing so, he became the first manager in UEFA’s history to win all three of the current European prizes.

“This is my tattoo, the joy of the Roman people led me to do it,” the Portuguese posted on Instagram.

“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.”

To date, Mourinho has lifted five trophies in his career in all UEFA competitions.

The Setubal-native has won the Champions League twice, first with FC Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010. He also led Porto to the UEFA Cup in 2003, Manchester United to the Europa League in 2017, and Roma to the Europa Conference League at the end of last season.
