After his unceremonious sacking from AS Roma, the Portuguese manager has made the most of his free time by flying out to the Middle East, where his presence garnered significant attention amongst fight fans.

Earlier in the day, Mourinho was at Al-Awwal Stadium for the Egypt Cup final, where he presented the trophy alongside football legends Ronaldo and Totti. He walked out of the tunnel with the silverware in his hand, flanked by Ronaldo and Totti, amid loud cheers from the audience. The trio shook hands with players from both Zamalek and Al Ahly before taking their place in the VIP box.

Mourinho had been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League but the manager turned down the opportunity as he wanted to honour the contract with Roma. Even after he got sacked, Al-Shabab came knocking on his door but the coach once again knocked them back as he is reportedly keen to stay in Europe for the time being.
