AS Roma took a ‘picture of defeat’. It contains the deep meaning of manager Jose Mourinho.
Roma kneeled 1-2 to Napoli in the 20th round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples, Italy at 4:45 am on the 30th (Korean time). With this defeat, Roma remained in 6th place with 37 points (11 wins, 4 draws, 5 losses, 26 goals and 18 losses).
Roma, which raised the atmosphere with an undefeated streak of 5 official games (4 wins, 1 draw), left for Naples. Prior to the game, Mourinho said, “I congratulate Napoli that they have already won the Scudetto (Italian Serie A title). It is a great club with a great manager and is 12 points ahead without any opponents. The Scudetto is already Napoli.” I also put it on.
“If you ask me if Roma will fall to Napoli, I answer no. We go there for the result. Even if Napoli has already won the Scudetto, it will not change,” he said, expressing his determination to win points in this game. 메이저사이트
Roma, where Tammy Abraham, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Paulo Dybala, Leonardo Spinazzola, Nicola Zalewski, Chris Smalling, Rui Patricio and others sortied. I played head-to-head against Napoli, but I couldn’t laugh at the end. After conceding the first goal in the 17th minute of the first half, Stefan El Sharawi equalized in the 30th minute of the second half.
It didn’t bring results, but Mourinho wrapped up the players. On social media, he shared a photo taken after the Napoli match with the comment: “Amazing team, great spirit, great performance. See you at the Olimpico Stadium on Wednesday.” It was a ‘losing picture’, not a ‘victory picture’.
As a result, the face hardened and could look ridiculous. However, coach Mourinho instilled confidence in the players and coaching staff and burned their determination for the next match.
Coach Mourinho and Roma will face Cremonese in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia early in the morning on the 2nd, and then face Empoli in the 21st round of Italian Serie A on the 5th. Roma are regrouping and preparing for the upcoming games to run their unbeaten run again.
