Borja Mayoral scored a hat trick and strikes from Carles Perez, Gianluca Mancini, Riccardo Calafiori, Nicolo Zaniolo, Nicola Zalewski, Amadou Diawara and a Santi own goal completed the rout.

Following the match, Montecatini posted on Facebook: “We leave Rome and Trigoria at the end of a wonderful and unforgettable day for which we thank the AS Roma for the hospitality.”

Mourinho is back in Italian football for the second time in his career after leading Inter Milan to a historic Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League Treble in 2010.

The Portuguese is the first managerial appointment under the new ownership of Friedkin family from the United States.

Mourinho is looking to revive his career at Roma after being sacked by Premier League clubs Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

During his first news conference as Roma manager, Mourinho rejected claims that his spells at United and Spurs had been a “disaster.”

Mourinho will be looking for another impressive result when Roma face Serie B side Ternana on Sunday.
