João Sacramento’s departure clarified

RomaPress – Following their holiday break, Roma were back on the training pitch today to begin preparations for their league clash next weekend against Milan.

The Giallorossi returned to Trigoria for this afternoon’s training session as they begin to kick-off the second half of their season in five days against the Rossoneri.

Visibly absent from today’s session was José Mourinho’s top assistant and compatriot, João Sacramento. Though, the reasoning behind the 32 year-old’s nonattendance was clear not long after the team wrapped-up today’s session.

Sacramento announced on Instagram that he resigned from his role as vice-manager of Roma, ending his two-year stint alongside Mourinho.

The timing of the announcement seemed odd considering the recent winter break, however, a club source insisted to RomaPress that there’s nothing odd about the decision.

They claimed Sacramento’s departure was a “journey that reached its normal, psychological conclusion” and reiterated it had nothing to do with relations having soured with Mourinho.
