Jose Mourinho goes berserk on touchline as Roma defeat ends his precious Serie A record | Football | Sport


Jose Mourinho could not hide his frustration as he finally lost his 43-game Serie A home unbeaten streak. The Special One may no longer be competing for titles every season but his legacy still sees him recognised as one of the best managers in football history.

While Roma are unlikely to be fighting for the Scudetto this season, there was still one precious record that Mourinho was determined to keep hold of.

Before tonight’s clash with Roma, Mourinho was unbeaten in 43 home matches in Serie A – a run that extends back to his time with Inter Milan.

Yet it was his former player Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who played his part in the run during his time at Inter Milan, who contributed to the record’s demise.

The Swede was on target on his return to the AC Milan starting line-up, rifling home a free-kick in the first-half.

In the dying embers, Kessie was dribbling out with the ball and cleverly bought a foul, much to the fury of Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician sprinted straight towards the fourth official to vent his anger.

Mourinho was incredibly animated, throwing his arms in disgust as he realised his record was not about to be ended.

The Roma fans are now starting to lose faith with Mourinho and their patience is wearing thin.

The 6-1 Europa League defeat at Norwegian minnows Bodo Glimt was the lowest point of Mourinho’s career but he did get a response from his players as they drew with Napoli before beating Cagliari.

Roma now sit fourth in the table, some 12 points behind joint leaders Napoli and AC Milan.
