Serie A: Roma's Mourinho Defends Action In 2-1 Loss To Cremo

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho, the coach of AS Roma, stated that he was provoked by the fourth official, which led to his sending off in their 2-1 loss against Cremonese in Serie A on Tuesday.

Cremonese secured their first win of the season with a late penalty by Daniel Ciofani, which left Roma in fifth place in the standings, outside of the Champions League spots.

Mourinho explained that his reaction was a result of his treatment by the fourth official, and he feels the need to do something about it legally.

During a news conference, Mourinho stated, "For the first time in my career, a referee has spoken to me in an unjustifiable way.

"I'm not crazy. And to have the reaction I had is because something happened.

"I need to know now if I can do something from a legal point of view."

The coach claims that the fourth official did not tell the referee the whole story, including how he was treated and what provoked his reaction.

Roma are now in fifth place in the table with 44 points, one point behind Lazio, who are in fourth place.

Cremonese moved up one place to 19th after winning their first Serie A game of the season.

Mourinho was disappointed with the loss and stated that the team did not deserve to lose.

He took responsibility for the lack of intensity and the failure to close the game immediately, which cost them dearly.
