Jose Mourinho remembered a reporter who had previously 'berated' him on Italian radio during a recent press conference – and claimed he "s*** himself" in his presence.
The Roma boss, who has been known to cause a stir with those in the media, was speaking ahead of the club's Serie A clash against Sampdoria on Sunday when he called out the person asking him a question.
Mourinho decided to fire back at his critic. "I was expecting a much more aggressive question, more negative and violent after I listened to you on the radio," he said.
"I didn't expect such an easy question. My conclusion is that you are much more aggressive and violent on the radio but when you come here you s*** yourself a little bit in front of me."
The journalist responded, saying: "So let's talk about the radio if this question is too easy," before Mourinho replied: "Yes, it's too easy, but that's okay."
This isn't the first time Mourinho has hit back at a journalist during his time as Roma manager.
Back in November last year, 'The Special One' ruthlessly hit back at a reporter who questioned if he would change anything during his first six months in charge of the Italian team.
Roma were on the receiving end of a 6-1 defeat against Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt in their Europa Conference League clash in October.

They also picked up some disappointing results in Serie A, so when Maro Juric asked Mourinho if would he change anything from his first six months at Roma, the question didn't exactly go down well.
Juric asked: “It's been six months since you signed for Roma, would you change anything that you've done in terms of choices, statements, requests or anything that you've done?”
However, a visibly frustrated Mourinho lashed out at the reporter and questioned his intelligence.

Mourinho said: “You are here in practically every press conference, but either you are very intelligent and you want people to think you are not or you are not intelligent at all.
"I want to think you're intelligent but you like to do what you do.”
