The Serie A side won the Europa Conference League on Wednesday, their first trophy in 14 years, after beating Feyenoord 1-0 thanks to Nicolo Zaniolo’s 32-minute strike.
Wild celebrations followed on Thursday as Roma paraded the trophy through the city in front of thousands of supporters.
Roma boss Jose Mourinho briefly got behind the wheel for the open-top bus parade
Mourinho was in a good mood before the parade even started, as he briefly drove the bus, and some of his players could hear him cheering on.
He nearly crashed into the bus before finally parking, after leaving the team’s goalkeeping coach, Nuno Santos, behind.
Mourinho has built a reputation for ‘parking the bus’ in matches due to the defensive tactics he has used during his time on the sidelines.
Roma posted a video on their Twitter account showing the bus passing by the famous Colosseum, with Mourinho waving to fans with a huge grin on his face and placing his hand on his heart.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport Mourinho was also seen singing along with Roma supporters.
Fans of Giallorossi started singing: ‘If you don’t jump, you support Lazio’ and Mourinho sang along.
