Roma’s manager, Jose Mourinho, was sent off as his team suffered a 2-1 defeat against Cremonese in a Serie A match. The Portuguese received a red card for the third time this season, just seconds into the second half of the game, after getting into a heated argument with the fourth official. He joined his assistant Salvatore Foti in the stands, who himself was serving a touchline ban for using insults when these two sides met in the Coppa Italia.
Mourinho’s team was already trailing 1-0 after Frank Tsadjout scored for the hosts in the 17th minute. In Mourinho’s absence, Roma was able to draw level in the 71st minute through a goal from Leonardo Spinazzola. However, parity didn’t last long, as Cremonese was awarded a penalty when Daniel Ciofani was fouled by Rui Patricio in the box. Ciofani stepped up and converted the penalty to secure the victory for the home side.
The defeat leaves Roma in fifth place in the Serie A table, while Cremonese’s win lifts them off the bottom at the expense of Sampdoria. Mourinho’s team must regroup quickly and focus on their next match against Parma, as they continue to fight for a Champions League spot.
This is not the first time Mourinho has been sent off this season, and his behavior on the sidelines has come under scrutiny. His dismissal in this game highlights his frustration with Roma’s form, as they have struggled to maintain consistency this season. The team will need to find a way to bounce back and perform consistently if they hope to achieve their objectives this season.
