Mourinho slams Roma players after defeat

Mourinho reportedly lashes out at players following Coppa Italia loss to Inter

February 10, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
The Portuguese tactician didn't hold back in expressing his frustration with his players' performance during the 2-0 loss to Inter midweek.

On Tuesday, Roma took on Inter in the Coppa Italia, in a match that pitted Jose Mourinho against his former side.

Unfortunately for the self-described "Special One" and the Lupi, things didn't go as planned, as they ended up losing 2-0, thus ending their Coppa Italia journey.

Roma were outplayed from start to finish, and in fact, were fortunate that they didn't lose by a bigger margin. Given that they're out of the Scudetto race, the Coppa Italia and the Europa Conference League represented the only opportunities at clinching silverware for the capital club.

Given that Roma have experienced a failure to achieve consistency since the start of 2022, it's no shock that Mourinho was furious with his players.

According to reports, he lashed out at the players in front of the entire staff and didn't hold back.

"I want to know why you've become so small against big teams for the last two years. If we are small, referees will treat us as such. Inter are a super team, but rather than find motivation, you sh** yourself!" he raged, according to reports from Italian publication Il Corriere dello Sport.

And he didn't stop there.

"Are you scared [to play in] big games? Then go to play in Serie C, without pressure, without champions, and big stadiums. You [have no] balls and that's the worst thing for a man."

It will be interesting to see if this will fire Roma up going forward as the Lupi prepare for action against Sassuolo this weekend.
