Mourinho Has Begun Lifting Roma through Narrow Victories

Roma have quietly found consistency after some glaring ebbs and flows in the first few months under José Mourinho. They have not lost in seven straight matches, prevailing in four of them. They garnered their second win against a big team Sunday. Both have come at the expense of Atalanta.

In particular, the Giallorossi have started getting it done through one-nil victories. They picked up the second in a row in the last round. They have already notched five in the season. Such result had not been seen so frequently in the Italian Capital since the 2017-2018 season, Tuttomercatoweb indicates. They reached the Champions League semi-finals with Eusebio Di Francesco at the helm at the time.

Mourinho is now eyeing Rudi Garcia’s tally in 2013-2014 when Roma narrowly topped the opponents six times in Serie A play. Paulo Fonseca, Luciano Spalletti, Claudio Ranieri, and Luis Enrique were not as productive in the peculiar stat.

The Giallorossi are on a par with Milan and trail only Juventus as far as slight wins are concerned in the ongoing campaign. The Bianconeri have collected eight. Mourinho spoke about the comparison with Massimiliano Allegri’s style in an early presser: “The coaches that are accused of focusing primarily on results are generally the most successful ones. Some see it as a negative thing, but it is quite the opposite. I think it is a completely wrong concept. Max and I have won something during the course of our careers. Thank God I fall into such category.”
