One woman is so obsessed with the Portuguese manager she now has three tattoos, a tortoise named after him, and even cancelled Christmas when he was sacked

One woman claims she is Jose Mourinho's biggest fan and, judging by her amazing new tattoo, it's hard to disagree!

Leicestershire's Viv Bodycote would do anything to back her favourite manager, and has come to his defence after he was fined by the FA for commenting on referee Anthony Taylor.

REVEALED: Chelsea's transfer plans

"When he got that fine and had to sit in the stands I was really unhappy about that," the 59-year-old told the Leicester Mercury .

"So I got myself another tattoo - it says 'Ms Jose Mourinho' and it's across my chest. Everyone thinks it's amazing."

As Mourinho's biggest fan, Viv decided against the tattoo saying 'Mrs', instead plumping for 'Ms' out of respect to Mourinho's actual wife.

"I'm a massive, massive fan of Jose but I like the whole family - he's got a wife and it didn't seem right to have 'Mrs' on my tattoo," she continued.

Fans beg Man Utd to take down 8-2 tweet

"It would be crossing the line."

The tattoo is her third inking hailing the Portuguese native, but she is not about to stop yet, claiming that further criticism of her idol could encourage her to return to the tattoo parlour!

"He went ranting at the ref but that's what I love about him," Viv revealed. "Some people are saying he should get the sack but I think he's amazing.

"The press is always making out he's doing something he shouldn't but the more bad press he gets the more determined I am to get more tattoos."

The grandmother, who has pet tortoises named Jose and Tami, after the couple, was a lifelong Chelsea fan before turning her attentions to Mourinho when he took charge of the Blues in 2004.

However, when he was sacked at Stamford Bridge in 2015, she was distraught and even cancelled Christmas!

"I was absolutely gutted. I couldn't believe Chelsea could do that to him," the Earl Shilton native said.

Mourinho is a tactical dinosaur

"Christmas was cancelled - literally.

"When my grandchildren rang me to tell me I didn't believe them. I had to find out for myself by going online. 

"I had a salad on Christmas. I shut the door, pulled the curtains and that was it."

Forget form - Why Man Utd are favourites

She still has a place in her heart for Chelsea, but now watches him at Old Trafford, despite never having met the 53-year-old.

"There is a part of me that still supports Chelsea because I have for so long but it is full blown Manchester United now," she continued.

"If I met him - wow I could only dream of that - it would be a dream come true. I'd be able to make conversation, but I would be absolutely amazed by it all.

"I think about him 24/7. I have his picture by my bed. We've all got something in life that take up our time - this is what I do.

"I'm not harming anyone. Everyone thinks it is great and my family support me with it."
