Jose Mourinho, the Portuguese tactician, has made a cameo appearance in the visuals of ‘Mel Made Me Do It’, Stormzy’s latest single.


The UK rapper released the video on Friday to raving responses from both music and football fans.

The lyrics connected Mourinho read: “You love to talk about the old days, them man are old like Annie, are you okay? I prefer not to speak like I’m Jose.”

‘Mel Made Me Do It’ is sampling Mourinho’s famous post-game outburst back in 2014 when he was the manager of Chelsea FC.


The 59-year-old Portuguese gaffer was angered by the performance of match officials in an English Premier League (EPL) clash between Chelsea and Aston Villa.

“I prefer not to speak. If I speak I’m in big trouble,” the Portuguese had said at a press conference in 2014.

The song infused the quote in a scene that sees the former Manchester United manager come on screen with his index finger planted on his lips as he mimes the lyrics.


Stormzy, a Manchester United fan, has been known to use football terms and analogies in his music which has endeared him to several sports stars.

The over ten minutes long video also includes cameo appearances from Usain Bolt, Jamaican sprint legend, and Dina Asher-Smith, UK sprinter.
