Jose Mourinho accused of repeating Manchester United antics at Roma

Asia's Tech News Daily

Jose Mourinho has been accused of creating an ‘uncomfortable situation’ after casting aside four Roma players.

The former Manchester United manager took charge at the Italians this summer after accepting an approach which came in the midst of a two-legged Europa League tie between the teams last season.

Of course, United won that and went on to reach the Gdansk showpiece – where they were beaten by Villarreal via a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out.

Roma have started the Serie A campaign by taking 19 points from a possible 30 and sit fourth in the standings.

However, after the stunning 6-1 reverse to European minnows Bodo/Glimt, the Portuguese dropped four first-team regulars from his Roma squad – suggesting he only had 13 players who were up to scratch.

Amadou Diawara, Borja Mayoral, Gonzalo Villar and Bryan Reynolds are the quartet to have been cast aside.

It’s a familiar trait that United supporters will, no doubt, recognise from Mourinho’s spell at Old Trafford.

Indeed, ex-Germany international Bastian Schweinsteiger boldly claimed he was exiled by the Portuguese coach on account of his previous relationship with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Over in Italy, meanwhile, Diawara’s agent has taken aim at the former Chelsea and Tottenham manager.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Daniele Piraino said: “I don’t understand the message he’s trying to get across.

“Is Diawara being made a scapegoat? Is he being made to pay a heavy price for an error? Is it an attempt to force the club into acting in the transfer market?

Do you rate Mourinho as a manager? Have your say in the comments section below.

“If it’s for these reasons, rather than fitness, or he feels the player is unable to understand the tactical requirements of the coach, then I think Mourinho is creating an uncomfortable situation.

“It is inexplicable, but Diawara will adapt. Amadou is an exceptional professional.”
