Jose Mourinho got his Roma job underway with a brutal 10-0 annihilation of Tuscans Montecatini in a pre-season friendly on Thursday.

The 58-year-old signed a three-year deal with the Serie A side in May, shortly after he was dismissed from Tottenham Hotspur.

And the former Chelsea, Porto and Inter Milan manager enjoyed the best start possible, after hammering local side Tuscans Montecatini.

Spectators were not allowed to attend the game played at the Fulvio Bernardini training centre, as Borja Mayoral hit a hat-trick while Nicolo Zaniolo, who wore the captain’s armband, found the net.

Carles Perez, Gianluca Mancini, Riccardo Calafiori, Nicola Zalewski and Amadou Diawara all added their names to the scoreline, along with an own goal.

Roma will continue their preparations for the 2021/2022 campaign on Sunday, when they take on Ternana, with fans able to view Mourinho’s side on television for the first time.
