JOSE MOURINHO once revealed the only time he cried after a defeat was when Real Madrid lost a Champions League semi-final on penalties to Bayern Munich back in 2012.

Last night Mourinho broke down in tears again, but this time they were tears of joy, after guiding Roma to the final of the Europa Conference League.

But going back 10 years the Portuguese gaffer had already steered Real Madrid to a record-setting year in LaLiga when he welled up after being denied the chance to make it to a Champions League final.

Madrid were the heavy favourites for Europe's top competition having overhauled Barcelona domestically with the most points, goals and home wins.

Mourinho, who had already lifted the Champions League twice with Porto and Inter Milan, missed out on a three-piece at the Bernabeu in heartbreaking fashion.

The Special One saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Sergio Ramos miss from the spot as Madrid fell to Bayern on pens in the 2012 semi-finals.

He would have met former club Chelsea in the final, who in turn, bested the Bundesliga side in a shootout to win their first-ever Champions League.

That night is the only time in my career as a coach that I've cried after a defeat. It was very hard because we were the best that season

Jose Mourinho

And speaking to Spanish outlet MARCA back in 2020, Mourinho admitted he found it hard losing the chance to play for La Decima and was reduced to tears.

He said: "Unfortunately, that's football. Cristiano, Kaka, Sergio Ramos... three complete monsters of football, there's no doubt about that, but they're also human.

"That night is the only time in my career as a coach that I've cried after a defeat. I remember it well...

Opening up about the incident further in an interview with Portuguese TV channel Sic, Mourinho previously admitted it was still the saddest moment of his career.

He said: "If I have to choose the worst moment, it's that elimination with Real Madrid.

"We were the best team in Europe, without a doubt, we won LaLiga smashing all the records for points and goals and we would've won that final, I don't have any doubt.

"What was most cruel for me was that in the shoot-out we chose Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Sergio Ramos, they were dead certs from the penalty spot and the guys who missed were those who never miss, it sunk me."

SunSport have previously revealed that it was the Chelsea dressing room who broke down in tears after Mourinho was sacked by the club for the first time way back in 2007.

Club captain John Terry said he and his team-mates were so devastated and shocked they approached the Blues board to reverse their decision.

The former England skipper would be reunited Mourinho in 2013 with the pair winning the Premier League for a third time two years later, before being axed again in 2015.

Former UFC Brawler Mike Perry Goes Off About His Bisexual Hands

Getty (L-R) Mickey Gall & Mike Perry

Former UFC star Mike Perry, who is set to compete in his second bout under the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship banner, recently went on a wild rant about his “bisexual hands.”

“Platinum” will battle Bellator MMA standout Michael “Venom” Page during the headliner for BKFC 27 in London, which is slated for August 20 at OVO Wembley Arena.

To promote their bare-knuckle boxing clash, Perry and Page went head to head verbally during a recent interview with The Mac Life. And during the interview, Perry brought up when he got into a physical altercation with a man in Texas in 2020.

Platinum said that he was prepared to “swat” anyone “in the streets” who comes at him, including “any gender.”

“People talk s*** about me, because that old man came at me and I swatted his a**,” Perry said via MMA News. “I swatted a few people in these streets. These hands is bisexual motherf*****… Anybody can get it. Any gender. Anybody can get this s*** at any given time because I don’t trust nobody. If anybody gets too close to me it’s going down like that.

“I get what you’re saying, ‘You’re a high-level athlete, you ain’t got time for these guys in the streets.’ I try not to have time for them, but they force their way in there, and you gotta swat ’em out. Flyswatter,” Platinum continued.

Perry Could Return to the UFC in the Future, His Manager Malki Kawa Recently Said

Perry’s manager, Malki Kawa, spoke with MMA Underground last month and said that with Platinum only having two fights left on his BKFC deal, fans could see him back in the UFC at some point.

“Did he wanna stay in the UFC? Yes,” Kawa said via MMA News. “Could he have stayed in the UFC? Absolutely,” Kawa continued. “Was it the right move? 1000%. I tell you this much, he beats MVP, I think he’s got one fight left on his contract at BKFC, he could easily come back to the UFC. Easily.”

Perry last fought inside the Octagon in April 2021 when he dropped a unanimous decision to Daniel Rodriguez. It was Platinum’s fourth loss in five fights, with his sole victory in the run coming by decision against Mickey Gall.

He has a professional mixed martial arts record of 14-8, with 11 wins via KO/TKO.

Kawa Pointed to the UFC for Building Platinum Into a Star

Kawa also praised the UFC for building fighters into stars, which included Platinum.

“I think a lot of people don’t give the UFC credit for that,” Kawa said. “I’ve been able to move Anthony Pettis and Paige VanZant because they’re UFC fighters. They might not have gotten it here, but then they went and got it somewhere else, and I think that’s very, very important for fighters to understand.

“You can come to the UFC and do the best you can — look at Mike Perry. I hate to say this, I don’t think he was ever gonna become UFC champ. There were some holes in his game and he was bouncing from gym to gym… He goes to (BKFC) and it’s like he found his home.”

Perry has only fought once as a BKFC combatant. He took on “The Ultimate Fighter” alum Julian Lane at KnuckleMania 2 in February and bested him via unanimous decision.
