Jose Mourinho suffers first defeat as Roma manager

The special one as popularly called, Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Roma manager after they lost 3-2 to Hellas Veron in Serie A on Sunday.

A stunning volley from Marco Faraoni proved decisive, as the hosts ended Roma’s 100% start to the season making it their first win of the campaign which took them out of the relegation zone.

Mourinho’s men started well as Lorenzo Pellegrini scored with a sublime back-heel flick but after the break, goals from Antonin Barak and Gianluca Caprari changed the game around.

Ivan Ilic’s own goal levelled things up in the 58th minute, before Verona again took the lead five minutes later through Faraoni.

 

Roma are now fourth on the table with nine points.

“We didn’t play very well, we didn’t adapt well to their way of playing,

“We lost many individual duels. I need the videos, I need a few hours to better understand what happened,” Mourinho told DAZN.
