Jose Mourinho makes his Roma players pose for dressing room photo after losing, it's peak Jose

Jose Mourinho made his miserable Roma players pose for a dressing room photo after they suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Napoli on Sunday night, and it's peak Jose.
After the Giallorossi managed to cancel out Victor Osimhen's volley through the eternal Stephan El Shaarawy, things looked increasingly positive for Mourinho's side.
But with five minutes remaining of normal time, Napoli substitute Giovanni Simeone – the son of Atletico manager Diego Simeone – scored to open up a 13 point-gap at the top of Serie A.
Luciano Spalletti's side, who have lost just one league game all season, are cruising towards their first Scudetto since 1990.
Away from Napoli's run of form and ultimately, it was a disappointing evening for Mourinho's men. But rather than wallow in self-pity, 'The Special One' decided to get his players together for a dressing room picture.
Shortly after the full-time whistle, he took to Instagram to share his delight at the result.
"What a TEAM what a SPIRIT what a PERFORMANCE. Let’s go. See you on Wednesday at the Olimpico," he wrote, before typing the same message in Italian.
As you can see from the snap below, the likes of Tammy Abraham, Andrea Belotti and goalkeeper Rui Patrício didn't exactly look in the mood to smile for the camera. Incredible.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the full-time scenes.
One fan said: "Remember when people used to get up in arms whenever teams posed for pictures in the dressing room after a big win? Jose Mourinho’s just posted one after a loss."
A second wrote: "Jose Mourinho posting a dressing room picture after Roma lost is glorious."
A third commented: "The players are fuming looool," while a fourth said: "Can just imagine the rage from Roy Keane when he sees this."
Ahead of Sunday's game and Mourinho conceded AS Roma's title challenge and congratulated Napoli for winning Serie A, despite it only being the end of January.

He said: "I hope not to be misinterpreted but congratulations to Napoli on the Scudetto. They’ve won it. It's theirs."
Mourinho then played down the consistency of both Milan teams. Inter sit 13 points behind Napoli and are currently their closest rivals, while AC Milan trail by 15 points.
He added: "Because of the inconsistency of Inter and AC Milan, and because you sense there's no other team that can go on a six, seven or eight-game winning run, the title is theirs.
"Congratulations to the people of Naples, the players and Luciano [Spalletti], they've won the Scudetto and they’re worthy winners."
