Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is enjoying his football under coach Jose Mourinho.

Mancini, 27, feels his game has improved under the Special One.

He told Sportmediaset: “José Mourinho is a football icon, it's one more reason for him to give more in training and in matches too."

On being club captain, he added: “Here in Rome, it's an important thing that I've learned to understand by being here, it's an honour to wear it, even if ours is a super captain like Lorenzo Pellegrini."

Mancini also highlighted the influence of Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

He added: “Every coach I have had has given me something, if I have to name one Gasperini gave me a lot, making me grow in every aspect to be in Serie A. Today I have the best one and I learn from him every day in every aspect, both tactical and psychological."
