The Giallorossi collected three more points defeating Sassuolo in a crazy Serie A clash at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma lead the group and make Mourinho happy.
The Portuguese coach couldn’t have imagined such a thrilling game the day of his 1000th cap as a head coach. When El Shaarawy scored the winner in the extra time, the stadium roared, and the players ran towards the Curva Sud to celebrate with their fans. But the unexpected run of Jose Mourinho to hug his players showed that the Portuguese coach already has a strong bond with his group and the fans as well.
“This was a very special game for me. I didn’t want a defeat and was terribly afraid of having a terrible memory of this match. It could have ended in any way, in the last 20 minutes Rui Patricio made incredible saves and we missed a lot of chances,” said Mourinho to DAZN after Roma-Sassuolo 2-1.
The clash against Dionisi’s side is a match that every fan of the Giallorossi will never forget. It will be a great memory for Mourinho as well who already shaped a very solid team. “Everyone showed a fantastic spirit in a match not to be forgotten,” Mourinho said to the Roma official channels.
Although many players seemed to be a little tired after the international break, yesterday’s win and the leading position in the Serie A standings brought unbelievable euphoria in the Eternal City. Everyone loves Mourinho for his ability to push his players beyond their limits and albeit there’s still much to do, Roma have been very consistent and ready to react to difficult moments.
