Since his touchline jog-cum-jig of delight at his FC Porto side eliminating Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in the 2004 round-of-16 tie in the same competition, the Portuguese manager has emerged as one of the touchline's most exuberant celebrators.

Mourinho revels in Ronaldo's winner

Whereas Ferguson's age can prove to be a barrier when enjoying a goal, 49-year-old Mourinho has no such issue. Perhaps it was rumours resurfacing of mutiny amongst certain Real Madrid players - coupled with the club's poor Primera Liga start - which prompted such an outburst of ecstasy.

Mourinho's Iberian roots and his occasional scapegoating of the team's Spanish internationals has led to rumours of disharmony. Sergio Ramos, Madrid's vice-captain, was dropped in lieu of rumours he had had an argument with his manager.

Mourinho denied this, but such murmurings perhaps led to his Armani suit picking up some irremovable grass stains. Ronaldo's dramatic timing was an additional contribution.

It's not the first time Mourinho has blemished an expensive suit, though. And amongst his celebrations is antagonism, elaboration and much much more. So why not enjoy Mou going mental?
