Roma are in a full-fledged crisis following the 1-4 loss to Genoa and their worst start in recent history, but the trust of the management in José Mourinho isn’t wavering at this stage. With the latest dud, the Giallorossi have won just twice in the past 14 away contests, Calciomercato informs.
The Friedkin family, which owns the team, hasn’t sent any warning shot to the boss ahead of the game versus Frosinone. They aren’t taking the protests and advice by fans into consideration. The supporters are calling for the Special One’s head on social media.
Roma haven’t reached out to any free-agent coach as they continue to back Mourinho. There are a few options on the market, such as Christophe Galtier, Igor Tudor, Julen Lopetegui, Frank Lampard, and Jorge Sampaoli. Plus, Daniele De Rossi, but he’d be a shot in the dark. Instead, Antonio Conte figures to be too expensive.
The Giallorossi aren’t planning to test the waters for any available gaffer at this stage. Instead, they are keeping tabs on Thiago Motta for the future.
Our Take on Roma and Mourinho
It’s too early for such an abrupt decision, especially considering how much they changed during the summer and their early injury woes. Still, since he’s on an expiring contract, it wouldn’t be a bloodbath if the hierarchy pulled the plug should they lose faith in his ability to turn things around.
