Mourinho sent off as Roma ends Napoli’s winning start to season

AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho was sent off from the stands as his side ended Napoli‘s successful start to the Serie “A” season after a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

Napoli entered the competition after winning their first eight Serie A appearances this season and dominated much of Sunday’s showdown with Victor Osimhen being refused by the post in the second half.

In a hotly contested affair, Roma created little. Tammy Abraham had the best of her chances, missing out on a good position in the first half.

As a frustrating Roma struggled in the second half, it became too difficult for Mourinho late, and he was sent off for protesting to the referee.

Striker Osimhen believed he had won it to death, but his header was ruled out for offside, Napoli’s point enough to bring them back to the top of the table, above AC Milan on goal difference .

Having made an impressive start to the season, Roma have now won two of their last six league games to take fourth place.

“I was asking for a situation in our favor, but I didn’t say anything special, nothing that deserves to be kicked out,” Mourinho told reporters.

“But this is not a game in which the referee did something wrong, the feeling is that the referee did a positive job.”
