Fans love ‘classic Jose Mourinho’ after Roma boss is SENT OFF against Atalanta and say they ‘miss him in the Prem’

RAGING Roma boss Jose Mourinho had fans calling for a Premier League return after he saw red for two “classic”outburst against Atalanta.

Mourinho “riled” back the years to his days at Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea with a pair of crazy yellow cards  in Sunday’s 1-1 Serie A draw.

First, the Portuguese manager ran furiously from his dugout to the touchline, protesting to referee Gianluca Aureliano over a decision.

Wide-armed and open-mouthed, Mourinho was also shaking from side to side as he vented his feelings – just as he did so often during his nine years in England.

That rant earned him his first booking – with viewers claiming it proved she’s still the “Special One”.

He then confirmed that, at the age of 60, he’s lost none of his fire and fitness by jumping up and down over another of the ref’s verdicts in anger in the dying minutes over another of the ref’s verdicts.

Out came the yellow card again – this time earning comments online such as “pure gold Mourinho”.

 One fan posted: “Miss him in the Prem! We need a bit more of that.”

And others believe his reactions are a welcome antidote to players and managers suppressing their feelings.

He wrote: “They’re trying to make the game as robotic as possible man, I’m getting so tired of the bare minimum of emotion being punished.”

But some viewers argued Mourinho’s antics are getting “tired”.

One suggested: “Man doesn’t learn and it’s lost its impact now.”

Mourinho’s bitter reactions weren’t the only dramatic responses in the stalemate.

Roma striker Paulo Dybala celebrated his penalty equaliser by sprinting back to the halfway line and THROWING the ball at Atalanta scorer Teun Koopmeiners.

That’s because the Holland midfielder had tried to distract the Argentinian as he prepared for the spot-kick.
