Genoa-Roma, Mourinho and the message to the fans: “It hurts the heart”

The Giallorossi coach after the heavy 4-1 defeat: “Analyze every detail with the players”

After Roma’s heavy 4-1 defeat against Genoa, it’s time for analysis. Giallorossi coach José Mourinho in an interview published this morning by the club on its social channels explains that he must “analyse with the players, I have to get to Trigoria instead of sleeping I have to put on the match and analyze every detail, if we cannot work in the field. I’m like that after these types of matches I don’t like going into the locker room and saying right or wrong things.”

It has been fixed training will resume at 3.30pm ahead of Sunday evening’s match against Frosinone. “We lost an incredible low ball in which Genoa scored the first goal. It was risky to keep Mancini on the pitch after the yellow card, knowing the type of referee”, he says, retracing some passages of the match. In the end, after “a heavy defeat, my message to the fans is simple. They’ve known me for more than two years, they know what they mean to me, it hurts the heart, I am the same as Budapest and Tirana”, he says recalling the two European finals played in 12 months. “All together we are trying to change and win again. When you look at the table it’s bad, we have to improve to win more games”, adds Mou.

What Mourinho said in the heat of the moment

“It’s the worst start of my career, but I think that for the first time in Roma’s history two finals have been played in a row in Europe”, Mourinho’s words immediately after the defeat at Marassi. “This is the group, no one arrives and no one leaves. We have to get out of this situation, there’s no point in crying”, the words to Dazn.

“We scored a goal disallowed for offside, we felt on the bench that the equalizer could come given that we had possession of the ball albeit without great quality”, says the Portuguese.
