Portuguese football legend and current head coach of Serie A Club Roma (AS Roma) José Mourinho doesn’t have a liking for Fortnite.
In a light-hearted video posted on Twitter, the football manager gave his opinion on a series of items (including Fortnite) as briefly as possible. He first described the City of Rome with three words: History, Power, and Passion. He then talks about what it’s like to live in Italy. Then, he was asked his opinion about Instagram. He calls the app fun and shows his appreciation to the fans of his club as well as to his personal fans. However, when it came to Epic Games’ hugely popular game Fortnite, José Mourinho didn’t have a lot of nice things to say.
On Fortnite, the former Manchester United manager says: “[Fortnite is] a nightmare.” He then proceeds to relate how his players love the game, and that it makes them stay up at night. “Football players they stay all night playing this sh*t, and the next day they have a game!”
Of course, it’s obvious that the legendary football player is only kidding in his remarks. The segment’s meant to be light-hearted, poking a little bit of fun here and there. Hence, Fortnite fans shouldn’t take offense from his statement. After all, Fortnite and football can co-exist. The appearance of Harry Kane and Marco Reus as Fortnite outfits proves that.
