Di Canio tells Roma fans: You've hired the worst of the WORST

Lazio great Paolo di Canio has launched a furious tirade against Jose Mourinho after his appointment by Roma.

Di Canio is adamant the move will end in tears.

He told Roma fans: "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.

“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."
