José Mourinho swaps Conor McGregor a Roma jersey for some whiskey

When mavericks meet.

José Mourinho has taken to Instagram to share his delight at meeting Ireland’s Conor McGregor.

The UFC star was holidaying in Rome, and took the time to visit the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss, who is currently managing Roma.

The Portuguese native has been a revelation on Instagram, with his hilarious and honest posts, but fanboying over a fellow sports star isn’t something he normally does.

However, he clearly holds The Notorious in hight esteem, and seemed delighted to share a drink with the two-time UFC world champion.

“Yes it’s him! Yes, the great @thenotoriousmma is in Rome and yes it was a real pleasure to meet him, to share some stories and to offer him the most beautiful shirt in town @officialasroma.

“He made a miracle, it’s impossible to say no to Conor, I had to try @properwhiskey ?? LEGENDA”

You can’t simply meet Conor McGregor these days and not try some of his ‘Proper Whiskey,’ which two-time Champions League winner Mourinho is pictured here enjoying.

It goes without saying that Mourinho loves it when his players have a bit of fight about them, so maybe keep an eye out for Roma players attempting a few roundhouse kicks in training.
