Paolo Di Canio Launches Astonishing Attack On Jose Mourinho In Leaked Phone Call

Paolo Di Canio has launched an astonishing attack on Jose Mourinho following his appointment at AS Roma.

His shock appointment surprised fans and critics including former Lazio man Di Canio who pulled no punches in a leaked phone call.

The Italian reportedly left a message for a Roma-supporting friend - with the damning clip surfacing online.

In the vicious recording via Football Italia, the ex-West Ham star said: "You've got the worst of the worst.

"I understand you needed a big name at this moment, but it's like when you sign a player who is finished.

"Mourinho just wanted a job with money, he's had his third sacking in four years, kicked out from everywhere due to the incompatibility of his character and before that's all he was good at, having character."

The former Sunderland manager continued: "Now Tottenham gave him the boot for his results and incapacity to take the team to another level after two years with all the money they spent.

"Considering the environment around Roma, he's fine, you might be expecting who knows what, but I tell you he's the worst of the worst.

"He's finished in every conceivable way. He doesn't even play football, he plays anti-football.

"You might enjoy yourselves in a few press conferences, because controversy makes for good theatre, but let me tell you: to reconstruct a team, he's the worst you could possibly get.

"And I can say that because he was my favourite up until seven years ago, even more than Pep Guardiola."

Roma are set to finish outside of the European spots as they currently occupy seventh place.

Mourinho, who's no stranger to Italian football having enjoyed a prolific spell at Inter Milan, has his hands full next season.

How will he fare? Let us know what you think.
