‘Just one of them would be enough!’ – Frustrated Mourinho names dream forward signings as he fumes at strikers
JOSE MOURINHO named three strikers he’d love to sign – despite his Roma side beating Real Sociedad 2-0.
The ex-Manchester United and Chelsea chief bemoaned Roma‘s finishing in Thursday’s Europa League last-16 first-leg win.

And Mourinho cast an envious eye towards Bayern Munich.
The German champions dumped PSG out of the Champions League on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory for a 3-0 aggregate success.
Bayern paraded their squad strength by bringing on former Liverpool frontman Sadio Mane, ex-Manchester City winger Leroy Sane and one-time Arsenal wideman Serge Gnabry, who poached their later second goal.
In contrast, Mourinho had little back-up for his front two Tammy Abraham and Paulo Dybala.
And La Gazetta dello Sport report the Portuguese manager as saying: “Against PSG, Bayern had Gnabry, Mane and Sane on the bench.
“Just one of them would have been enough for me.
“Like this, I could have replaced Dybala and perhaps score one more goal.”
Abraham did tee up Roma’s early opener for winger Stephan El Shaarawy before defender Marash Kumbulla doubled the Serie A team’s victory margin three minutes from time.

But United and even Chelsea are tipped to show interest in 11-cap Englishman Abraham over the summer.
At least, though, Mourinho was happy with Roma’s display in general.
He told Sky Italia: “The boys’ merit was their organization, their effort and their empathy on the pitch.
“We were good at controlling the game even without the ball.”
