Jose Mourinho has shown that he will not entertain any form of sluggish attitude from his Roma players next season.

The 58-year-old manager was spotted giving a young academy player Ebrima Darboe a piece of his mind during their friendly match against Debrecen – a match they won 5-2.

A brace from Edin Dzeko and one each from Borja Mayoral, Lorenzo Pellegrini, and Nicolo Zaniolo handed the Serie A giants the triumph.

“Hey Darboe! Wake up right now, da’mn it! Come on!”

Meanwhile, regardless of the ‘Special Ones’ reaction to his players, he has guided them to four wins in games so far this pre-season.
