Mourinho takes blame after Roma humiliated

Roma suffered another humiliating defeat this evening, losing 6-1 in Norway to Bodø/Glimt.

The Giallorossi were dismantled by the reigning Norwegian champions in their Conference League encounter—the first time any of Josè Mourinho’s teams ever conceded six goals in a game.

At full time, the Portuguese technician accepted responsibility for the nightmare performance and result.

“I’m the one who decided to play with the team we use tonight, so it’s my responsibility,” he said to Sky Sport.

“I did it with good intentions and to give opportunities to those who work hard and also give a rest to some guys. Tonight we lost against a team with more quality, it’s as simple as that.”

“If I could use the same players every match I would. It’s risky because there’s a huge gulf between our first choice and second choice players. I expected better, but it’s my responsibility.”

“Every defeat leaves scars. I already spoke frankly and honestly to the players. The good thing is that no one will keep asking me why the same players keep playing.”

“We can’t get Sunday wrong against Napoli. Our first choice players have been doing well. They’ll have the weight of this defeat on their shoulders.”
