Mourinho was sent off for the third time this season as Roma were beaten by a team who hadn’t won an Italian top-flight game in 27 years. The Portuguese coach was incensed by the result


Jose Mourinho was sent off for the third time this season as Cremonese achieved their first Serie A win after a 27 year drought.

It was alleged that Mourinho had used expletives in English directed at the match officials when he was sent off in the early stages of the second half. The Roma manager was seen to be agitated and viewers leveled accusations of foul language towards him.

What a blow for Roma and Mourinho as defeat kept them out of the top four

Mourinho received a red card for dissent as Frank Tsadjout scored an impressive top-corner opener just 17 minutes into the match. Leonardo Spinazzola then managed to equalize the score for Roma, courtesy of Gianluca Mancini’s long pass. However, Ciofani’s penalty winner – following a foul by keeper Rui Patricio – in the 83rd minute earned Cremonese their first Serie A win in 27 years, while also denying Roma a chance to move back into the top four Champions League spots.

The Mourinho’s behavior did not come as a surprise to fans, who took to social media to jokingly comment on the incident. One fan quipped that the manager had now received more red cards than his players, while another noted that Mourinho had been sent off for verbally abusing the match officials. Some viewers even believed they could make out foul language from the manager.
