Jose Mourinho seemed to be humbled by recent comments credited to Roma legend Francesco Totti prior to getting started in his new role as Roma manager.
Recall the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham boss Mourinho has recently been appointed as the new Roma boss on a three-year contract after leaving Spurs shortly before the end of last season.
Roma legend Francesco Totti welcomed the appointment of Mourinho to replace the departed Paulo Fonseca.
While speaking at an ambassadorial event in Rome earlier this week, Totti said: “Mourinho, when he arrives, will say what he thinks.
“We are waiting for him to arrive. We have taken on the strongest coach in the world.
“Would it have been nice to be coached by Mou? When I was young, yes.”
Francesco Totti’s comments were noted by Mourinho, who responded on Instagram on Thursday.
Alongside an image of the pair when Mourinho was coaching a side against Totti’s Roma, the comment on the post read: “Thanks for your words Francesco, too bad I arrived four years late.
“Training you would have been a pleasure.”
What a great response. Share your thought about Mourinho stay at ROMA, will he perform?
