Serie A official Marco Serra has admitted to being partly at fault for Jose Mourinho’s outburst in Cremonese-Roma which resulted in the Portuguese technician receiving a two-match ban.
After attending several hearings at the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, Serra admitted to “imperfect behavior” toward Mourinho, reports Calcio e Finanza.
His lawyer, Gabriele Bordoni released the following statement: “At the end of a frank and honest confrontation, we believe we have managed to bring out the coach’s exasperation in the face of an imperfect attitude on my client’s part in a credible and coherent way.”
“Serra said he understood that his attitude, technically flawless, could be misunderstood and may have made Mourinho annoyed. I asked, for technical reasons, that the story end here. I would like it to end with a handshake between two gentlemen.”
