Being suspended, Jose Mourinho was forced to watch Roma's win over Inter from the team bus, and filmed himself doing so.

Mourinho was sent off at the end of his side's match with Atalanta two weeks ago and therefore had to serve a touchline ban for the game against his former club.

He chose to watch in the car park from the team bus, and posted a number of videos on Instagram while doing so.

In his first posts, he made it abundantly clear how he felt about having to watch the game from such a location, being visibly unhappy about it.

He then posted one in which he stated 'I'm going to die here', struggling to deal with the fact that he couldn't influence the game.

Ultimately though, his move improved with his side prevailing 2-1 after going a goal down thanks to goals from Paulo Dybala and Chris Smalling.

After the full-time whistle was blown, a video was posted of him and his staff celebrating the victory in the car park, and he then made his way to the dressing room to congratulate his players.

“Well done guys, great football," he said.

It's not the first time Mourinho has made the headlines for how he has dealt with suspension, with him famously hiding in a laundry basket to sneak into the Chelsea dressing room while banned during their Champions League match with Bayern Munich in 2005.

While he's yet to achieve the same level of success with this Roma side as he did at Stamford Bridge, things are now going in the right direction with the club up to sixth in the league.
