World No 15 De Sousa is affectionately known as the Special One, like the Tottenham boss.

His fellow countryman Mourinho said: “Jose de Sousa, you already stole the Special One but I am very happy you did!

“I’m super proud, a big hug.

“I hope one day we can meet and you can give me some tips, because now and then I like to go to the darts but I am a bit weak!”

Mourinho may decide to watch the sport next month when the World Darts Championship gets underway at Ally Pally.

The government’s announcement of the Tier system means up to 1,000 fans could be allowed to dust off their fancy dress outfit and attend.

The original Special One was on the receiving end from some darts fans after he was sacked by Manchester United.

The former Chelsea boss was trolled at the 2018 World Championships with a sign saying ‘Taxi for Mourinho’.

But Mourinho has not lost his appetite for the Oche and will be cheering on De Sousa in the tournament.

Mourinho’s focus will be back on the football though with Spurs facing a crunch clash with Chelsea on Sunday after their 4-0 Europa League win over Ludgorets.
