7 defeats in 16 league games. Worst since 2008/2009 when there were 6 stops
On May 4, the day of the announcement of the arrival of Mourinho at the Roma, it seemed impossible just to think so. Yesterday, for the Giallorossi, the seventh defeat in sixteen matchdays took place A league. It is the worst data recorded since the 2008/2009 season when there were six stops. Mourinho has rediscovered its history. But the idyll of 2010 turned into a nightmare in just 25 minutes. There Roma it collapsed under the blows of Inter who at the end of the first half was already 3-0. Curiously, even in that year 13 years ago the Nerazzurri dominated the Olimpico match by winning 4-0 thanks to the brace of Ibrahimovic and to the goals of Stankovic e Obinna. The Roma it is forced to change course and has all the means to do so starting from Mourinho, ended up under accusation of some situations in the Giallorossi world.
In the post-match Tiago Pinto intervened to publicly show the company’s support for José Mourinho. “Since he has been here he has brought out a lot of things from so many players. I don’t want to find excuses but we have had a lot of difficulties in the last few weeks with 6/7 absences. I am convinced that Mourinho will continue to bring out the best“the words of the GM who then continued:”Today we are influenced by a defeat, but I watch the development of the players we have every day and there are many small changes that will bear fruit. It has happened so many times with so many teams that there are moments of difficulty but it is in these moments that we must be united“. It Special One, therefore, he has the support of all and the players follow him. It’s up to him now to instill his winning mentality.
MourinhoHowever, he is not the only one who has to commit. There Roma he has a patchy squad in many areas of the pitch and his current absences only highlight this problem. In January Pinto will have a lot of work to do. The midfielder is still awaited in Trigoria, who will have to arrive arm in arm with a central and a full-back. The disqualification of Karsdorp has shown once more, should it be needed, that the purchase of a right winger is essential because Ibanez is completely unsuitable for the role e Reynolds, well … it is Reynolds. Also Cristante e Veretout they need quality spare parts. They can’t do it alone. The Frenchman is a distant relative of the one who earned the call a few months ago. He runs aimlessly across the field, failing elementary steps. The number 4 is not far behind, even if it has just returned from Covid. The entry into the field of Bove e Volpato it was a clearer signal than the sea in Sardinia in August: “If you don’t buy anyone, I’m forced to put on the spring“he wanted to say Mourinho. “When we have 7 losses it is easy to say that we need everything more. But I don’t think when we lose we have to change everything. I understand that today my words may seem nonsense but every day I work in Trigoria I am confident that we are on the right path. We need to bring extra things to the club to make the fans proud“said Pinto in the post-match.
“It can not rain forever“said Brandon Lee in Il Corvo. This is what the fans of Roma they know more than anyone else. The Giallorossi people led the Olimpico to be the second most crowded stadium in Italy and even yesterday, despite the blow, raised chants to support the team. People have been with Mourinho and alongside the team and always will be because the Roma fans will never be slaves to the result.
