Mourinho and Roma owners make step in right direction

Andy Mattioli

Roma boss Jose Mourinho expressed his gratitude to the club’s owners and management for their recent support.

Prior to the match against Sassuolo, the Special One had been targeted by Italian media and members of some of the country’s footballing organizations such as FIGC and AIA for his comments with regards to the designation of referee Matteo Mercenaro on Sunday.

Roma owner and President Dan Friedkin as well as General Manager Tiago Pinto backed Mourinho on this occasion, providing him with the necessary level of protection in the public eye.

According to La Repubblica, this may be an important sign for the future as Mourinho still awaits the definite meeting with the club’s management to address his own future in the capital.

The newspaper suggests this episode could prove vital in securing a new deal for the Portuguese technician who has already shown his willingness to stay beyond the expiry date of current contract.
