Roma and Mourinho Having a Historically Poor Start

Roma and José Mourinho are off to a terrible start, having collected just five points in the first six rounds. Their only win came against Empoli in a 7-0 drubbing. Genoa added to their misery with a commanding 4-1 success on Thursday night.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Special One never commenced this poorly. He came close to the current numbers only at Chelsea in 2015/2016, picking up one extra point. The squad almost mutinied. He and the club agreed to part ways in December. His second-worst tally after six matches was in his rookie season on the bench at Uniao Leira when he recorded three wins and three losses.

Roma and Mourinho once again struggled on the road in the midweek match-day. The Giallorossi tied their worst start in the 2000s, which happened in 2010. On two other occasions, they were level with this year’s early haul but prevailed in their sixth tilt.

The capital club had a midseason coaching change in all the previous instances where they began this badly in the modern era. Rudi Voeller got the ax in 2004/2005, Claudio Ranieri in 2010, and Eusebio Di Francesco in 2018/2019.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

Early woes are understandable considering their offseason turnover, but they should have ceased a pair of contests ago. Chris Smalling being sidelined shouldn’t been enough for their whole defense to crumble.
