Mourinho sent off as Roma gets three red cards, lose 5-2

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, was sent off after storming onto the pitch during his side’s pre-season friendly 5-2 defeat to Real Betis on Saturday at Benito Villamarin.

Rodri, Nabi Fekir, Alex Moreno, Cristian Tello and Robert goals secured victory for the LaLiga side as they defeated Roma.

Eldor Shomurodov and Gianluca Mancini did score but was not enough to save Mourinho’s side from the humiliating defeat

Lorenzo Pellegrini was sent off by Spanish referee Figueroa Vazquez and Mourinho rushed onto the pitch to express his disapproval and was also sent off because he furiously remonstrated with the officials.

Things went from bad to worse for Roma as Gianluca Mancini was then sent off before Rick Karsdorp also received red.

Roma will now tackle Raja Casablanca on August 14 in their next pre-season fixture before facing Fiorentina at home in their 2021/22 Serie A opener.
