Jose Mourinho films Roma training with DRONE ‘to show players their mistakes in real time’

Jose Mourinho begins filming Roma training with a DRONE, installing a screen next to the pitch ‘to show players their mistakes in real time’ as he gears up for his first season back in Serie A

  • Jose Mourinho has introduced drone technology at Roma training ground
  • The development allows Mourinho to show his players their mistakes live
  • The Special One wants to start strong in its first season in Serie A

Jose Mourinho is no stranger to controversy, although it usually has to do with his pre- or post-match comments rather than his approach to training.

But the Special One has brought in new technology to help its Roma players improve in Serie A next season. Specifically, drones.

Mourinho, who is looking to make a splash in his first season in Italian football, has reportedly introduced the drone technology so he can show his players their mistakes “in real time” and therefore help them tackle them faster.

Roma’s Twitter account has released a short video of the drone technology being set up at the club’s Trigoria training facility.

Several small screens and joystick controls are shown before the drone is launched into the air, with the camera broadcasting its bird’s-eye view live to a giant screen on the side of the training field.

The video ends with Roma players gathering at the screen at the side of the pitch, apparently taking in the huge new recorder of all their mistakes.

Mourinho’s tenure got off to a flying start after Roma destroyed local Tuscan Montecatini in a pre-season exhibition game, scoring 10 goals.

As well as updating Roma’s training practices, Mourinho is keen to refresh his squad by signing Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio for £9.8 million.

However, he suffered a major setback thanks to his former club Manchester United, who blocked a loan for left-back Alex Telles because they want to sell him permanently instead.
