JOSE MOURINHO channelled his inner David Brent when describing Roma striker Andrea Belotti.
Summer signing Belotti scored his first goal for the club in last night’s 3-0 Europa League win over HJK Helsinki.
But Mourinho still reckons Belotti is trying too hard to score the perfect goal, and hit out at him for his fancy “heel touches”.
The Portuguese icon said: “Belotti also seems to be suffering from this disease we have up front, today I saw him do four or five heel touches. This is not him.”
“He has to score, with his knee, with his ass, with his head.
“He has the virus of a playmaking wizard, whereas he just needs to score. That’s it.
“We need to improve in terms of execution, the average of shots and goals made is not good.”
Belotti finally broke his duck against Finnish minnows HJK, after Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini had struck for the Italians.

And Belotti has also found himself victim to a classic Mourinho line.
In the last week the Portuguese manager has also hit out at Abraham, publicly calling for the ex-Chelsea striker to drop deeper on the pitch to affect the play.
Mourinho told Sky Sports Italia: “He has to do it – he has to drop deep when the team needs him.
“Maybe he can struggle more mentally to do it, but that is also the mission.”
