AS Roma: José Mourinho fined €20,000


By: Manu Tournoux

José Mourinho can cringe. Yesterday, AS Roma outclassed Sheriff Tiraspol (3-0). However, this success does not allow La Louve to finish in first place in their group, ahead of Slavia Prague. Thus, the Giallorossi are condemned to compete in the C3 play-offs next February. And as bad news never comes alone, the Portuguese technician was fined 20,000 euros by the FIGC according to information reported by Sky Sports.

The reason ? On the sidelines of AS Roma’s victory at Sassuolo (1-2) on behalf of the 14th day of Serie A, the 60-year-old coach strongly criticized the match referee, Matteo Marcenaro. “I’m worried about the referee, we’ve had him three times as fourth official and I don’t think he has the emotional stability for matches at this level. It is not the same profile of those who are at this level. We have often had bad luck with him… You will see that tomorrow with Mr Marcenaro, Mancini will have a yellow card after 10 minutes and will miss Fiorentina., had released the Lusitanian in front of the press. With such damaging statements, José Mourinho also risks another suspension. In parallel, Sky Sports informs us that the main person concerned has appealed this sanction.
