Jose Mourinho sees AS Roma score ten in first pre-season game as manager finally removes the handbrake

Posted by

Mourinho, defensive? You’re having a laugh, aren’t you? The managerial legend saw his AS Roma side score TEN in his first pre-season game in charge.

The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager has developed a reputation for being overly conservative at times.

Mourinho has continually been accused of parking the bus in big games, sometimes to his side’s benefit, but often to their detriment.

In Rome, he appears to have found the solution to his problems, and it’s only taken him a single pre-season game to do so.

All this time, through all the criticism, Mourinho just needed to schedule friendlies against Serie D teams. That way he can allow his side to take the handbrake off…

All jokes aside, it will be interesting to see just what his strategy will be with this Roma side, who conceded more goals than any other team in the Serie A top ten last term.

Of course, he’ll be looking to use the transfer market to his benefit, but perhaps a change of style and system is what they really need to get into contention for Europe…
