A diehard AS Roma fan made the bold decision to propose to his girlfriend in front of manager Jose Mourinho.

Stunning footage uploaded by Roma to their social media showed supporters meeting the 59-year-old before a pre-season training session. A couple shook hands and took pictures with the former Manchester United boss, but the meeting quickly escalated into something no one could have predicted.

The man suddenly took his girlfriend’s hand and pulled her in front of the camera, all while instructing Mourinho to stay put in the background. He said: "Mr. Mourinho, un minuto por favor," meaning 'one minute please Mr Mourinho' in English.

The Portuguese manager appeared baffled and even looked to escape at one stage, until he and his staff caught on to what was happening. The man then went down on one knee and asked his partner to marry him.

Fortunately for the Roma fan and all others in attendance, she accepted while bursting into tears as the couple embraced and the Roma coaches all clapped with smiles on their faces.

Fans had mixed feelings towards the bizarre proposal on Twitter, with one fan writing: "Jose was so awkward lol."

Another tweeted: "What an odd world we live in," while a third joked: "Another title for Jose, pastor. The man keeps on winning."

It comes after Mourinho brought a first European trophy to Roma last season in the form of the Conference League. His side were less successful in the league, however, finishing sixth in Serie A below rivals Lazio.

Roma will play French side Nice and Mourinho’s former club Tottenham Hotspur in July before kicking off their season against Salernitana on August 14.
