Mourinho at Risk of Getting the Axe with More Duds

Roma fell to ninth place following the loss to Milan, and José Mourinho is teetering. The brass could make abrupt decisions if they don’t win against Verona. Given the recent results and his expiring contract, the Special One is hanging by a thread, Corriere della Sera informs (via OneFootball).

The Giallorossi were heavily contested by their Curva on Sunday. They have collected 29 points after 20 rounds, their worst mark since 2002/2003. They have suffered three straight defeats on the road and struggled against the big teams all season long.

Roma director Tiago Pinto, who’s about to leave the club, alluded that the future of Mourinho would be decided by their new exec. The ownership announced he would be installed quickly following the resignations of the current one. He’ll remain in charge till the end of January.

The Special One often stated that he would wait for the call from the capital club before looking for a new landing spot. It remains to be seen whether he’ll indeed see out the campaign, though.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

The Giallorossi not keeping up against quality competitors is no surprise, especially with no Paulo Dybala and a ragtag defense. The position looks bad, but the Champions League zone isn’t far. There’s no clear frontrunner behind the top three at this stage. It’s unlikely they’ll do anything until they hire a new director. Chances are they’ll take care of business in the upcoming easier fixtures.
