The arrival of the Giallorossi president in the capital is a sign of important decisions, but his sudden dismissal was difficult to predict
January 16th will be a difficult day to forget in Rome. The Giallorossi club in fact announced this morning the dismissal of the ‘Special One’, with the immediate farewell of José Mourinho and all his staff. The situation was serious after the knockout in the derby and in Milan with the Rossoneri with an involuted team and many injuries and Dan Friedkin’s arrival in the capital today was clear that it could lead to important decisions. But that Mou would be sacked so suddenly was more difficult to predict. Whether the decision is the right one or not only time will tell, but now the club must immediately find the name of his successor.
“We will always have great memories of his management, but we believe that, in the best interests of the Club, an immediate change is necessary,” Dan Friedkin wrote in the official note. Now in Trigoria they hope that the next triptych of matches, after six consecutive high-ranking clashes and the painful Coppa Italia derby, will help Roma get back on their feet. The matches against Verona, Salernitana and Cagliari, with two out of three events at the Olimpico, could help the team recover. However, in addition to the coach, the Friedkins must quickly find a sporting director and perhaps a liaison man between the team and the club. After Tiago Pinto announced his resignation and Mourinho was sacked, Roma are without anyone to guide them on a technical-sporting level. And the club today, when training resumes, will be without his guidance.
