Very few personalities in the world of football have a stronger relationship with headlines and controversies than Jose Mourinho. While he always tends to be the topic of discussion in the news, it is often to do with his pre or post-match press conference rather than what he does at the training. However, the former Manchester United boss, who is set to begin his first season with Roma in Serie A, has now brought in some new technological aid to help players improve on their game.
Looking to leave a mark and regain his reputation as a manager after not so successful stints with Premier League giants Red Devils and Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho has reportedly introduced drone technology so that he can show his boys their mistakes and help them rectify them then and there. The same was confirmed after Roma put up a short video of the technology on its official social media handle.
Roma scores 10 past Tuscans Montecatini in a pre-season friendly
In the video, the technology is being set up at the club's training facility at Trigoria. Other than the drones, several small screens along with controlling units with joysticks are also shown in the video before the drone is sent skywards. At the same time, the drone camera captures its birds-eye view live to a huge screen at the side of the pitch. The video ends with the players gathered around the screen, seemingly making note of the mistakes that they made during the passage of play or training.
Although the season is yet to commence, Mourinho's tenure at Serie A seems to have gotten off to a blistering start after they scored as many as 10 goals past local team Tuscans Montecatini in a pre-season friendly. Other than bringing in the new technology, Mourinho is also looking to rebuild his squad and has already brought in goalkeeper Rui Patricio from Wolves at a reported price of £9.8million. While he was also wanting to rope in Alex Telles, he suffered a setback since Man United are now looking to sell him permanently instead of loaning him out.
