Mourinho’s ‘chosen’ ballboy: “I will keep the note forever.”

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho was seen passing a secret tactical note to a ballboy with the instruction of delivering it to Rui Patricio in the final minutes of Roma-Fiorentina.

The Special One needed to quickly communicate defensive adjustments as Roma were down to nine men and struggling to contain the Viola.

In the aftermath of the 1-1 draw, the ‘chosen’ ballboy, Lukas Bruscaglia, reflected on this special moment via his Instagram profile.

“Everybody would have done the same thing in my place,” wrote Bruscaglia. “I will keep the note with me forever.”
