Fast track. Mourinho jokes Olympic sprint champion Jacobs could play up front

August 9 – Roma manager Jose Mourinho says Olympic sprint champion Marcell Jacobs would have made a great footballer in another life after jokingly pretending to sign the 100m king.

Mourinho has no doubts Jacobs would be a perfect fit at Roma.

“Super fast, dominant, technically perfect. Can play as a defender or striker…” Mourinho said in a post on social media next to a picture with the 27-year-old athlete one day after Roma’s 5-0 friendly win over Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.

Roma superfan Jacobs was gifted the No. 12 shirt during his visit to the club.
