If you are a fanatic fan willing to do anything to get close to your favorite soccer coach, who happens to be one of the best in the world, what should you do?

A Chinese soccer fan's once-in-a-lifetime experience may give his jealous peers a hint. Just as a right goal comes on the pitch, timing is everything.

The fan, identified as Xiaobowen 1991 by his Sina Weibo account, was among the overzealous crowds swarming a bus carrying Chelsea players and asking for autographs. The English Premier League stunned German side Shalke 04 in a five-goal rout on Tuesday, advancing to the Champions League round of 16 as group leader. The impressive win was enough to delight manager Jose Mourinho, who took an unusual move to pay back fans' support by inviting them onto the bus.

During a short conversation, the lucky Chinese fan got an autograph and took a selfie with Mourinho, which later he posted on Sina Weibo, a microblogging service in China.

The fan clearly caught Mourinho in a good mood as the Portuguese showed his easy-going side, saying "of course, anything you want."

In his Weibo post, the fan also praised the manager's charisma, which he said helped to lift Chelsea's team spirit and made it one of the most successful English clubs.
