Jose Mourinho claims Roma striker Belotti has an ‘illness’ after he delivered ‘four or five heel strikes’ in a mad interview

JOSE MOURINHO channeled his inner David Brent as he described Roma striker Andrea Belotti.

The ex-Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager is known for his zany interviews and his latest attempt was no different.

The Roma gaffer hilariously claimed that striker Belotti is suffering from a “sickness” which means he can’t put the ball in goal.

Summer signing Belotti scored his first goal for the club in last night’s 3-0 Europa League win over HJK Helsinki.

But Mourinho still believes Belotti is trying too hard to score the perfect goal and slams him for his fancy ‘heel touches’.

The Portuguese icon said: “Belotti also seems to be suffering from this disease that we have up front. Today I saw him do four or five heel touches. It’s not him.”

“He has to score with his knee, with his butt, with his head.

“He has the virus of a playmaker while all he needs to do is score. That’s it.

“We need to improve our execution, the average of shots and goals scored is not good.”

Belotti finally broke his duck against Finnish minnow HJK after Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini scored for the Italians.

Mourinho snapped up Italy striker Belotti on a free transfer after his contract expired in Turin, but the 28-year-old is behind England ace Tammy Abraham in the pecking order.

And Belotti has also fallen victim to a classic Mourinho line.

In the last week, the Portuguese manager has also attacked Abraham, publicly urging the ex-Chelsea striker to dig deeper onto the pitch in order to influence the game.

Mourinho told Sky Sports Italia: “He has to do it – he has to fall deep when the team needs him.

“Maybe he can fight more for it mentally, but that’s the mission too.”
