Football manager José Mourinho has admitted Epic Games' hugely popular battle royale, Fortnite, is "a nightmare" for him because his players stay up too late playing it, affecting their performance on the field.

Speaking in a Q&A posted on A S Roma's Twitter account, Mourinho shared his views on a number of things, including what he thinks of the city of Rome, life in Italy, Stadio Olimpico, and his views on the social media platform, Instagram ("it's fun!" apparently).

He wasn't quite so complimentary about Fortnite, though. When asked what he thought of the battle royale, Mourinho smiled wryly and said it's "a nightmare".

"Football players, they stay up all night playing that sh*t, and the next day they have a game!" he said, laughing. 

On the subject of Fortnite, have you heard about its upcoming "musical journey into magical new realities where Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide", the Rift Tour? Sure, Epic is keeping pretty quiet on the details for now, but for everything we know so far about the event– including those "magical new realities" that possibly include a guest appearance from Ariana Grande – we've got you covered.  

Don't forget that there are three rewards up for grabs for players prepared to get involved. While we're still not yet certain what in-game challenges players have to complete to secure the rewards Rift-sterpiece Spray and Cloudy Kitty Emoticon, you can get Cosmic Cuddles Loading Screen now by simply confirming your intention to attend by checking "Wanna go?" If only everything in life was that easy, eh?

And don't forget that Fortnite is introducing a Bloodsport skin from The Suicide Squad to celebrate the movie’s release this weekend.
