Former Roma manager Fabio Capello sounded off on the club’s decision to sack Jose Mourinho.

In an interview with Sky Sport, Capello expressed his displeasure with the recent developments at Trigoria and shared his advice with Daniele De Rossi who will manage the team until the end of the season.

“I think American owners in general work without respecting the people they collaborate with. We saw it at Milan with Maldini and today in Trigoria with Mourinho. There is no sensitivity on their part, but only business.”

“On the other hand, I think that respect is also needed, perhaps by reaching an agreement first and in-person and not with a statement and a simply phone call.”

“It was clear that something wasn’t working from the fact that the owners didn’t respond to his requests. They treated him in the least respectful way and we are talking about one of the most important coaches in history.”
