Mourinho's men would end up losing the game by 6-1 in a match he would never forget in a long while.
The Norwegian side were 2-0 up after just 20 minutes through Eric Botheim and Patrick Berg before Carles Perez pulled one back eight minutes later.
But that would be the only goal that would be scored by the Serie A side tutored by the former Chelsea and Man United boss.
Bodo/Glimt scored four second-half goals as Botheim completed his brace likewise Ola Solbakken who also scored two goals and Amahl Pellegrino completed the rout.
Mourinho took responsibility for the loss as he claimed that he decided to use fringe players to give them opportunities to showcase themselves.
“I’m the one who decided to play with the team we use tonight, so it’s my responsibility.
“I did it with good intentions and to give opportunities to those who work hard and also give a rest to some guys. Tonight we lost against a team with more quality, it’s as simple as that.
“If I could use the same players every match I would. It’s risky because there’s a huge gulf between our first choice and second choice players. I expected better, but it’s my responsibility.”
