Jose Mourinho Unhappy with His Treatment at Roma

Roma manager Jose Mourinho is having difficulties reconciling with the notion that the media and fans have identified him as the main culprit for his side’s disastrous Serie A start. While the media remains in the business of pointing fingers, the only thing that concerns Giallorossi supporters is their team’s abysmal form at the beginning of the new campaign.

Mourinho had a busy summer reinforcing his ranks, only for Roma to pick up just one win in their first six Serie A matches. Midweek league action was a bitter pill for the Stadio Olimpico outfit. Newly-promoted Genoa ran riot at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, dismantling Giallorossi 4-1 on Thursday.

Despite suffering a humiliation in Liguria, the Roma chiefs are reluctant to axe Mourinho. At least, that’s been the club’s stance as of now. However, things could change if the Portuguese manager fails to deliver on Sunday against another promoted side, Frosinone.

With the game taking place at the Stadio Olimpico, there would be no excuse for another potential upset. But Mourinho doesn’t like the atmosphere surrounding the club these days. He’s particularly unhappy with being blamed for Roma’s crisis. 

During the holidays, I received the biggest and craziest offer a coach has ever received in the history of football,” the Roma boss said, as relayed by BBC. “And I turned it down. 

I did so because I’d given my word to my players, I’d given my word to the fans and I’d given my word to the club owner. Three months later, it seems like I’m the problem. I can’t accept that.

Mourinho will be under heavy scrutiny against Frosinone as Roma cannot afford another slip-up.
