JOSE MOURINHO delivered a “classic” line after saying Pedro is a “born diver.”
And the two had a reunion when Mourinho’s Roma travelled to Lazio.
Pedro started on the wing for the hosts and was accused by his former manager of diving during the match.
Mourinho said after the 0-0 draw: “I didn’t want to leave Mancini alone with Pedro. I needed Karsdorp to stay and help him.
“Pedro is a fantastic player but he is a born diver, an excellent swimmer, he dives into the pool just beautifully.”
It left fans in hysterics as one said: “Classic Jose.”
Another laughed: “Sometimes I love Jose a lot.”
Mourinho arrived in the Italian capital in 2021 and led them to Europa Conference League success in his first season.
He then guided them to the Europa League final last term but Roma have made an indifferent start to the current campaign.
Mourinho, 60, is only under contract at the Stadio Olimpico until June 2024 and now it looks unlikely that he will be staying after that.
TeamTalk reported that the Portuguese coach is set to leave once his contract expires.
It was claimed “several players will follow him out the door” – and one of those is 26-year-old England international striker Tammy Abraham.Jose Mourinho with Tammy Abraham[/caption]
