Watch Jose Mourinho ride a VESPA around Roma’s training ground as he gets pre-season training underway at new club

NEW Roma manager Jose Mourinho has been enjoying some Italian culture by driving a VESPA around the club's training ground.

The SunSport columnist recently arrived in Rome after his team returned to training ahead of the upcoming season.



The 58-year-old has shared a video on Instagram of him riding the iconic Italian-made scooter while being filmed by several cameras.

One cameraman is sitting on a golf buggy, which makes the video even more bizarre.

It's unclear at this stage why Mourinho was driving a Vespa around Roma's training ground, although we assume it was for business and not pleasure.

The ex-Chelsea manager was greeted by dozens of Roma supporters when he arrived in the Italian capital at the beginning of July.

Mourinho has replaced fellow Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca at the Stadio Olimpico and is aiming to close the gap on Inter Milan.

Roma finished seventh in Serie A last term – TWENTY-NINE points behind the champions.

The Italian giants also finished six points being rivals Lazio and haven't won a trophy for 13 years.

Mourinho was sacked by Premier League side Tottenham in April and hasn't lifted silverware since winning the Europa League at Manchester United in May 2017.

The two-time Champions League winner is reportedly interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, although Juventus are also believed to be keen on the player.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Mourinho has hired five scouts from across Europe to help the club in the transfer market, including ex-Leicester man Jose Fontes.

Mourinho has already suffered a huge blow at his new club, losing defender Leonardo Spinazzola to serious injury at Euro 2020.

The Roma boss is said to be interested in signing his former player Marcelo from Real Madrid as a replacement for the Italy international.

Mourinho believes England manager Gareth Southgate is making the right decisions after the Three Lions progressed to the semi-finals of Euro 2020.
