Yes, the special one came out alone 40 minutes before the Madrid derby kicked off. Based on this video — captured from the stands of the Bernabeu on a camera acquired sometime in the early 1990s — it appears Jose was greeted with a mixture of jeers, cheers and whistles.

This may be the most self-indulgent thing ever witnessed on a sporting field, quite the feat considering the characters professional sports draws with its sirens of fame and wealth. Mourinho fell on his sword in the least endearing way possible.

Madrid lead Atletico at half thanks to a wonderful Ronaldo free kick. Even if Los Blancos hold on to beat their cross town rivals they’ll remain eleven points behind Barcelona. Jose remains a special, self-obsessed manager in a place that suits him perfectly. Don’t do it Real.
