AS Roma 1-1 Torino: Just a point and a sending off at home for Jose Mourinho

AS Roma 1-1 Torino: Jose Mourinho handled his red card against Torino with aplomb. It was a typical ending to the 59-year-old Portuguese’s terrible first half of the season.

In the last minutes of the game, Mourinho was enraged. The Special One expressed his disgust to the referee following a foul and subsequent yellow card for Benjamin Tahirovi. “I deserved the red card because of what I said to the ref during the game. After the game, I apologised to him.”

AS Roma 1-1 Torino: Jose’s words

Whereas we’re used to hearing from the trainer that he can be tough after a game, he’s now deafeningly quiet. “I’m not going to go into detail about the referee’s actions today. I’ll leave it up to you to comment,” he told the reporter.

The coach responded to the game. “Today, we may discuss two games: one that ends in the 70th minute because the fans wanted to leave, and another that ends in the 80th minute because the fans wanted to leave. And one in the last twenty minutes in which we may have produced more than in the previous four or five games put together. We have to make do with what we have because we have a tiny team. It’s different when Dybala isn’t on the field. Look at what we can do with him on the field,” he emphasised the 28-year-old Argentine’s outstanding performance.

Despite this, Mourinho is satisfied with the game. “We have a tremendous sense of unity as a team. When a team fails to convert a penalty in the 92nd minute, they usually surrender. However, not for us. We kept going,” he remarked, referring to Andrea Belotti’s missed penalty and Nemanja Matic’s 94th-minute equaliser. Despite their tremendous team spirit, the Romans are in sixth in Serie A, 14 points behind leader Napoli. After the World Cup, the team will entertain Bologna.
