Jose Callejon rode on Jose Mourinho’s back during Real Madrid’s title celebration

Dirty Tackle

Real Madrid beat Mallorca 4-1 in their final match of the season to become the first club in Europe's four biggest domestic leagues to reach 100 points for a season. After reaching such an impressive milestone, the club held a lavish title celebration on the pitch at the Bernabeu that was a cross between the final scene in Star Wars and the closing ceremony for the space olympics.

Near the end of the celebration, Jose Callejon took the microphone and announced that he needed to do "one last thing before the season ends." He then got off the podium, took Jose Mourinho by the hand and jumped on his manager's back for a piggyback ride just as Mourinho had spontaneously done to him during a match against Valencia back in November.

When Mourinho was first introduced for the celebration, he bowed before his players. Video of that moment, plus some photos right this way...
