The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss has drawn 205 and lost 157 of his 1,000 games as a manager.

“I told everyone lies! I had been saying to the team for days that this 1,000th game was not important to me… but I had an incredible fear of losing!

“Luckily we won and I was running like a child today because I was feeling 12 years old, not 58,” he said after the game.

Roma are now top of Serie A, having won their first three fixtures.
