As Roma boss Jose Mourinho has vowed to pull the club out of its current poor start to the Italian Serie A season, News About Nigeria reports.
This will be Mourinho’s worst start of his coaching career, as Roma has only won just one of their first six league matches. The Italian side suffered a 4-1 defeat to Genoa on Thursday, leaving them in 16th place with only five points.
In a post-match interview with DAZN, Mourinho expressed his disappointment but chose not to delve into specifics.
He said, “I apologise to the studio, but I have no real desire to talk. I didn’t speak to the players. When I don’t talk to the players, then it means I can’t really discuss this in-depth and answer your questions either.”
Speaking about his team’s challenging start to the season, Mourinho recalled that it was the first time Roma had played two European finals in a row, emphasizing the demands on the team.
Despite the difficult circumstances, Mourinho maintained his commitment to the current squad, emphasizing that the transfer window is closed, and they must work with the group at his disposal.
“We have no time to cry. We can cry internally, because it hurts our heart, especially for me because of my rapport with the Roma fans. But tomorrow we will be back at work.”
The former Chelsea manager concluded by highlighting the importance of their upcoming game, stating that although it is worth only three points, they will have to win, to help the team’s progress.
