Mourinho reveals what Rome lacks to return to the winning path

Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, coach of the Roma team, expressed his dissatisfaction with the result of the Sassuolo match, which was held on Sunday evening, and ended in a 2-2 draw in the twenty-fifth round of the Italian League “Calcio” for the current season 2021-2022.

Jose Mourinho told Football Italia:

“When you lose in 90 minutes and then come back in extra time, if people tell me before the game you will draw, I will say no, I can compare this match with the losses of Bologna, Verona and Venice.”

Jose Mourinho added:

“These matches have a lot of similarities, in the last 10 minutes we had chances of a draw, one point in each of them more than 4 points, it was not the result we wanted, but at least it gives us the opportunity to feel that we have not lost, am I thinking of more points? Of course, we could have beaten Genoa, we could have had more points.”

The Portuguese coach emphasized the team’s lack of a little attacking effectiveness:

“Yeah, ten minutes, even with an extra player, is not enough to change the result, coming here and having 50-50 or 49-51 is not football, that means we had more stability at the back, and Kumbula gave us that quality in a great way. Basically, I think in the first part of the match we lacked order and discipline.”

Mourinho continued:

“Every time the ball got to Veena and Karsdorp, there were few options to play on the field and we were playing the deep ball that they often expected, Felix in seventy minutes he didn’t have a chance, in the latter part of the game even with 11, the team was improving The point is deserved, the frustration because we came here to win, but in the end we’ll see how much we have.”

He continued:

“There is only one piece of news that I can’t say is a lie, if it has one unbeatable quality, it’s chemistry, group, they can say we are poor!, they can say they are all poor, but no one can say we are not a very united team, In terms of football, of course, we have our limits, the second goal was to have nightmares about it, like so many other things.”

On defense, Mourinho said:

“It depends on how the players feel more comfortable on the pitch, it’s not what I like the most, it’s not what I think is the main idea.. It’s the result of the players we have, that’s very important to me, depending on our characteristics, we make the best puzzle where he feels The players are better.”

On the midfield, Jose Mourinho confirmed that:

“The first time they are playing together, it is clear that they can do better from an individual point of view and from a chemistry point of view, Sergio has just arrived, and so has Pellegrini, there was a bit of a risk to play 90 minutes, but it was a risk we had to take depending on who we are. The result”.

Mourinho continued:

“For me, Mkhitaryan’s conditioning, who is obviously not a scorer, was really good, he’s not that player there, but out of all those players, he’s the one who has more standards, who thinks better about the game and the moves, who finds the spaces better. For me he is the most effective player, we have to improve and we have to do everything we can to finish the season in the best position in the table.”

Jose Mourinho concluded his speech:

“We have a conference league to play in, people are wrong when they think that it is a competition without the quality of the league, on that day I saw PSG-Rennes and I saw a scary opponent.”
