Roma lost to Juventus (1-0) on Matchday 8 of Serie A. However, José Mourinho chose to retain the positive of this defeat.
The shock of the 8th day of Serie A did not turn to the advantage of José Mourinho’s men. Barely beaten by the Juventus (1-0), including a penalty missed by Jordan Veretout, the Romans were not successful. A cruel setback as the Giallorossi dominated the meeting, but the Portuguese tactician preferred to retain the positive of this match. “If I have to look at the project and the growth of the team, I have to say that the team that deserved to win lost. I would like to congratulate all my players ”, he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The former coach of Chelsea therefore prefers not to lament and even defended Veretout on his missed penalty. “The hierarchy is clear: Veretout is the first penalty taker, Pellegrini is the second and Abraham the third, although things can change. But I saw a great performance from Tammy and Jordan. “
Arrived last July in the Eternal City, the Special One does not make any waves and his team is 4th in Serie A, while being well engaged in the Europa League Conference. A successful start to the season for the Portuguese technician and his players, whose main goal is to win a title this season, something that has not happened since 2008.
