Referee designator Gianluca Rocchi denies “issues” with Mourinho

Andy Mattioli

Italian referee designator Gianluca Rocchi addressed the tense relations between Roma boss Jose Mourinho and Serie A officials over the course of the season.

In a recent interview with Rai Radio 1, Rocchi denied the existence of any consistent issue.

“There is no problem with Mourinho specifically, neither personal nor group-wise. I’m not referring to him, but to all the coaches.”

“What we will certainly ask for in the future is increasingly correct behaviour on the part of the bench and already this year we have had an improvement over my first season, which from this point of view was a drama. Incorrect behaviour of the bench results in incorrect behaviour on the field.”
