Rapper stormzy dropped a video for his new track ‘Mel Made Me Do It’ on YouTube on Thursday as Portuguese manager Mourinho makes a special appearance.
The ex-Manchester United and Chelsea boss appears with Stormzy and his crew in a cameo during the 10-minute video, while the artist delivers the line: “They love to talk about the old days, the man are old like ‘Annie, are you OK?’, I prefer not to speak like I’m Jose.”
The audio follows one of Mourinho’s most famous quotes: “I prefer really not to speak. If I speak, I am in big trouble.”
Eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, and Great Britain runner Dina Asher-Smith also have cameos.
Mourinho’s moment in the limelight is ‘special’ though, of course. The Roma manager has always been a big character in the game, but since he set up his Instagram account, he’s also evolved into a bit of a social media star.
The 59-year-old posted a picture with himself and Stormzy on Instagram on Thursday, saying: “Was great fun doing this cameo for Stormzy’s new music video.”
The song is littered with sporting references, with nods to NBA star Kyrie Irving.
Stormzy says “Why would I reply to him? I leave him hanging like Kyrie on the rim”.
Former Arsenal and now Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also gets a mention.
“I’m shining in my skin, for eight figures, I’m Aubameyang, I go and sign the ting.”
Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe and British boxer Dillian Whyte also get a namecheck: “I got tec’s like I’m Kylian, punch like I’m Dillian.”
