Jose Mourinho has  begun his time at Roma on a great note, as they win over  Tuscans Montecatini 10-0 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.

Mourinho has decided to take on a new challenge in the Italian capital.

And the former Chelsea, Man United and Spurs 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.
