Tammy Abraham seen winking at Mourinho while killing time during Conference League Final win

The Mourinho effect

Tammy Abraham has fully bought into the Jose Mourinho shithousing ideology as he shared a cheeky wink with his boss during Roma's Conference League Final win.

The Italian side won the inaugural competition thanks to a first half goal from Nicolo Zaniolo as they held off a flurry of attacks from Feyenoord in Tirana.

Feyenoord continued to ramp up the pressure in the second half and almost had an equaliser, but were denied by a phenomenal save from Rui Patricio.

Abraham, who has been in excellent form for Mourinho's side during the competition, scoring nine goals in the run to the final, lead the line for the Giallorossi on a famous night for the club.

Despite it being one of his quieter games, the former Chelsea star still made himself a presence and with time ticking down on the clock, Abraham decided to buy into a little bit of time wasting and fell to the floor as he was fouled near the touchline.

As he rolled around on the turf, there was some initial fears that the England International had injured himself but as he clocked eyes with Mourinho, a cheeky wink reassured him that he was fine.

Luckily the tactic paid off as Roma held on and finally ended their long run without a trophy, winning their first piece of silverware since 2008, when they lifted the Coppa Italia.

Mourinho also made history as he became the first manager to lift the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League titles and only the fifth manager in history to win three major European honours. It was also the 59-year-old's fifth European trophy.
