Roma have been dealt an extensive series of blows to begin the season in the form of several injuries plaguing Mourinho’s squad.
As a result of injuries and poor fitness levels, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that two members of Mourinho’s coaching staff are being deemed partly responsible for this injury plague.
Assistants Stefano Rapetti and Carlos Lalin are regularly tasked with athletic training and injury recovery.
So far this season, the number of injuries have prevented Roma from performing with consistency in the opening weeks of the new campaign.
Roma are evaluating the situation carefully – to continue losing players at this rate could potentially compromise the club’s ambitions to achieve a top four finish.
