Roma manager Jose Mourinho has made a surprising appearance in a new clip from Stormzy.
The grime superstar dropped a new single, titled ‘Mel Made Me Do It’, on YouTube yesterday. It was the first time Stormzy had released new music in almost two years.
In the song’s eleven-minute video, Stormzy enlisted the help of many stars from different horizons. For example, 100m world record holder and sprinting legend Usain Bolt made an appearance, as did documentarian Louis Theroux.
Additionally, Stormzy featured a famous face from the football world in his music video. The rapper is a Man United great fan and has already collaborated with the club. In 2016he took part in the unveiling of Paul Pogba at Man United by taking part in an Adidas promo with the Frenchman.
But in his most recent work, Stormzy has collaborated with none other than former Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho makes brilliant appearance in Stormzy music video
The current Roma boss makes a brief but hilarious appearance in Stormzy’s latest offer.
As Stormzy performs the line, “I’d rather not talk like I’m Jose,” the camera cuts to Mourinho and the rapper standing in an ornate room.
The music then stops, after which a soundbite from Jose Mourinho’s iconic ‘I’d rather not talk’ interview is played. As the clip continues, Mourinho and Stormzy brilliantly shush at the camera as those around them react enthusiastically.
Following this, the Roma boss continues to coolly pose with the music star as he relaunches in the verse. Although only on screen for around 30 seconds, Jose Mourinho has certainly increased the hype for new track Stormzy.
His signature phrase, which is now in a song, is also part of Premier League history.
“I prefer not to speak”
The origins of the legendary ‘I’d rather not talk’ music video can be traced back to Mourinho’s second stint at Chelsea. In 2014, the Blues suffered a 1-0 loss at Aston Villa. To make matters worse, Chelsea received two red cards during the game which infuriated their manager.
In a post-match interview with Sky Sports, Jose Mourinho did his best to play it safe.
“I’d rather not talk,” the then-Blues boss said. “If I talk, I’m in big trouble. In great difficulty. And I don’t want to get in big trouble.
Mourinho then went to great lengths explaining how he wouldn’t talk about the red cards or the refereeing of the 1-0 defeat.
This fantastic clip has become a viral sensation and has been used in many different meme formats over the past few years. Now, thanks to Stormzy, football fans have been able to reminisce about one of Jose Mourinho’s greatest moments of all time.
