Despite being rated higher than their opponents, coach Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma was unexpectedly defeated by home team Slavia Praha with a score of 0-2. After the match, the Portuguese strategist admitted that this was a bad performance and that only one player did not deserve to lose.
“We lacked everything today. I don’t want to say much and neither does anyone else. This result was completely deserved, both in a positive sense for Slavia Praha and in a negative sense for us. I don’t like anything about our performance. I talked to the players in the dressing room, which is something I have never done,” he shared.
“I want to be honest and fair with the Slavia Praha boys, who fully deserved this victory. I’ll tell you something I really like, Edoardo Bove. He is only 20 years old and he alone cannot help us win the match. We all deserved to be beaten tonight except Bove”.
The defeat against Slavia Praha does not affect AS Roma’s ability to enter the next round too much. However, this will be a bad momentum for Jose Mourinho and his team before the big battle with Lazio this weekend.
