The coach of the team of the capital AS Roma, Jose Mourinho, in a small video format he expressed his opinion towards Fortnite, calling it a “nightmare” because the players play with it rather than sleep before a match.
The edition behind the famous battle royale by Epic Games continues to show itself on several occasions. The success of the game has brought together several stars worldwide both as fans and for events that take place in-game such as the Travis Scott concert last year or the upcoming Rift Tour, which we told you about at the inside one of our dedicated articles.
At a sporting level, other icons are not excluded, such as the NBA basketball player LeBron James, but having his say is a star of the world of football, namely the manager of AS Roma Jose Mourinho. Considered one of the best of the modern era of sport thanks to his achievements with FC Portos, Chelsea and Real Madrid, the coach was the protagonist of a video posted on the official social channels of the Roman team. It is a format called Rapid Responses, a series of small films in which football players and staff they express their views in quick succession.
Mourinho talked about the history, power and passion of the city of Rome, how difficult it was to settle there, his favorite Italian dishes and, of course, Fortnite. But unfortunately for fans, it looks like man doesn’t like the title signed Epic Games: he called it “a nightmare”, but not because he is tired of playing it, rather because his players do not stop sticking to the game.

The footballers are up all night playing that stuff… and the next day they have a game.
Definitely not a very healthy choice for players, but Jose Mourinho he is not the first football manager to complain of their players who get distracted by Fortnite. A large number of younger players often spend the night playing it with their teammates instead of resting for an important match. Often the passion behind the battle royale is such that when players score goals on the pitch they perform the typical dances and emotes of Fortnite.
