Mourinho Meltdown: Biggest career defeat, fans angrily confront players, Jose slams second-string

Posted by

Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma were defeated 6-1 in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night in one of the biggest shocks of the season.

Mourinho, who took the reins in Rome over the summer following his dismissal by Tottenham Hotspur, has enjoyed a mostly positive start to the campaign.

The defeat to Juventus last time out in Serie A was an unfavourable result, but AS Roma were the stronger side on the balance of play – they’ve looked good under Jose.

Though the Portuguese boss made changes as AS Roma made the trip to Norway to face FK Bodø/Glimt, nobody could have foreseen what would happen next.

It got so bad for the Italian giants that their own Twitter account didn’t even report the score at full-time.

FYI, they lost 6-1.

It was the heaviest defeat that Mourinho has ever suffered in his illustrious coaching career. That probably won’t surprise you, considering how defensively compact his teams usually are.

Mourinho pulled no punches post-match, as you’d expect, tearing into AS Roma’s second-string side and hinting that the cracks are beginning to show ALREADY.

As for his players, they were angrily confronted by the travelling supporters after going over to show their appreciation. All that cash spent to travel to Norway – for what?

There’s usually a ‘third season syndrome’ with Mourinho, but we may well have been fast-tracked to that stage already. The Mourinho meltdown is already in full swing.
