Jose Mourinho accuses journalist of 's***ting himself' in latest bizarre outburst

Jose Mourinho has accused an Italian journalist of "s***ting himself" in yet another remarkable rant.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss is renowned for not being shy with the media and has managed to build up a catalogue of stunning tirades during his iconic career. And the 59-year-old has made headlines on more than one occasion since returning to Italy with AS Roma last summer.

Despite a promising start to life in Rome, Mourinho has come under intense pressure, with his flops currently lying in seventh spot in Serie A. Roma were expected to be challenging for a top-four finish after appointing Mourinho and spending big on players like Tammy Abraham in the summer.

And as a result of their lacklustre campaign, a number of local reporters are seemingly unhappy with the volatile Portuguese chief. But prior to Sunday's crunch clash against Sampdoria, one unfortunate journalist, Alessandro Austini, was subjected to a vintage tongue-lashing from Mourinho at his pre-match press conference after he stuck the boot in on the Roma boss during a radio interview.

After Austini asked a question, Mourinho saw his opportunity and sniped: "I was expecting a much more aggressive question, more negative and violent after I listened to you on the radio.

"I didn't expect such an easy question. My conclusion is that you are much more aggressive and violent on the radio but when you come here you s*** yourself a little bit in front of me."

Austini fired back by asking if Mourinho would like to discuss the radio interview instead if his question was "too easy" before the row fizzled out.

Mourinho's barb isn't the first time this year that he's taken out his frustrations in the media suite amid Roma's domestic struggles. When asked if he would change anything from his first few months in charge back in November, Mourinho questioned the journalist's intelligence.

"You are here in practically every press conference, but either you are very intelligent and you want people to think you are not or you are not intelligent at all. I want to think you're intelligent but you like to do what you do."
