And it seems the evening got off to a miserable start for the Special One.

The former Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea boss was greeted by fans on his way to a bus that was taking him to the ground.

But the seemingly friendly crowd turned when one lobbed a snowball at the Portuguese head coach.

He’s not special for nothing, and Mourinho managed to dodge the chilly missile.

But the 59-year-old and his associates were evidently displeased with the incident and so the ex-Real Madrid boss decided against greeting the rest of the crowd and went straight to the bus.

Things then went downhill further as he witnessed his side lose to the Euro minnows.

Lorenzo Pellegrini opened the scoring on 43 minutes to send Roma into the dressing room with the lead at half-time.

However, Bodo/Glimt equalised after 56 minutes through Ulrik Saltnes and turned things around when Hugo Vetlesen scored just one minute before full-time.

The defeat to the Norwegian side was Roma’s SECOND of the season.

Mourinho and co suffered a shock 6-1 thrashing in the Europa Conference League group stage six months ago.

Carles Perez opened the scoring that night but it all went downhill after that.

A brace by Erik Botheim and Ola Solbakken as well as goals by Patrick Berg and Amahl Pellegrino led to Mourinho’s heaviest defeat since his arrival in Rome.

The quarter-final return leg is next Thursday in Rome.
