Mourinho congratulates Milan after win against Roma and blasts ‘lack of respect’

By Oliver Fisher -

Roma boss Jose Mourinho provided a very concise reflection of the defeat against AC Milan, congratulating the Rossoneri for their performance.

The Rossoneri knew that the pressure was on after Napoli’s win against Salernitana to move three points clear again at the top, but the tone was set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s thunderous free-kick in the first half and then Franck Kessie’s penalty early in the second half after Ibra had been brought down.

The ending was made more dramatic when Theo Hernandez was sent off with 25 minutes to go after a second yellow card, but Milan navigated the remaining period well aside from a late consolation from El Shaarawy that made the final three minutes a tad more nervous.

Mourinho spoke to DAZN after the game and revealed that he had to restrain himself on what he really wanted to say for risk of being sacked before their next game, with MilanNews relaying his comments.

“Congratulations to Milan. I don’t want to say anything more, if I speak then I will not be on the bench on Sunday. There was a lack of respect for our fans and for those who love Roma. Even in a match in which we didn’t play well but we gave everything, the respect that we have others do not give.”

    Respwct to Mourinho.The ref got a few calls wrong. The Theo red card was not supposed to happen because Roma got the ball by Clearly fouling Krunic.
    The Ibra penalty and the Kjaer-Pellegrini penalty shoot were BOTH not penalties.
    I still think we deserved the win….we dominated the 1st half..and should have been 3 goals up given the chances we made.

      I think our penalty was a penalty. Pellegrini was a non event but on ibra, yes he got a touch but he cleared ibra our by going through the back/side of him first. Ibra went down like a sack of potatoes which isn’t his usual style and the touch was so minimal that if ibra were to stay on his feet he could have easily retained the ball and although maybe he wouldn’t have got his shot away he would have been able to recycle the ball and keep the play alive. This is where the right call for a penalty was awarded. Ibra was fantastic but more and more you see his age creeping up on him. He has to give himself the extra yard which when he scored that disallowed goal you could see he was just off and with the penalty he would have got to the ball quicker and the defender wouldn’t have been near him. He’s just a couple of yards off the pace these days but is so intelligent it buys him back a yard. krunic i think was trying to buy a freekick and got caught out. Forza Milan. Mourinho is a clown. I hope he’s talking about his fans being racist to his friend Ibra and Kessie. Hopefully he is, that’s how I read it also.

        What the hell are you saying?? You got potatoes as brain bro, go and watch the match again before you make stupid analysis in a legend like Ibrahimovic

          Hahahaha………Come on. He was complementing Ibra, man.
          He was saying that Ibra makes up for his lack of pace with intelligence and experience.
