In a recent post-match interview, AS Roma coach José Mourinho commented on the current situation of Juventus Turin. According to the Portuguese strategist, it’s like a bad joke from a sporting point of view and he sympathizes not only with coach Massimiliano Allegri but also with all Juventus players.
Even José Mourinho has not left a thread dry on the case of Juventus Torino, which is facing not only a ten-point deduction due to accounting irregularities but also an accusation for machinations with players’ salaries.
In a recent interview with DAZN after AS Roma’s 2-2 draw with Salernitana, he said the situation was perhaps a joke.
“It’s a joke to find out two games before the end of the competition. For us and for everyone, even for Juventus. Our approach would have been different if we knew before the games against Monza and Bologna. I feel sorry for Allegri and his players,” said the man nicknamed The Special One, whose words were also quoted by Football Italia.
Furthermore, the reporter asked Mourinho if he felt that this season was biased. How did the AS Roma coach answer it?
“For me, yes, but I don’t want to talk about it anymore,” he admitted. “I feel sorry for professionals who work like me because they pay for the mistakes made by the directors and maybe even the club,” he added.
What’s the situation in Serie A?
Juventus are currently only seventh in Serie A as a result of the 10-point penalty, five points behind fourth-placed AC with 59 points. However, they will still play a return leg with the Rossoneri on home soil. It is the fourth place in the Italian top flight that serves as the last Champions League spot for the 2023/24 edition.
However, they are only one point behind sixth-placed AS Roma, who hold the Europa League spot. It is only two points behind fifth-placed Atalanta (Europa League).
As far as AS itself is concerned, the home draw with Salernitana is understandably a big loss for José Mourinho’s charges in the fight for the European Cup.
37. the Serie A round starts already on Friday with Sampdoria’s preliminary game against Sassuolo and the rich programme continues on Saturday and Sunday. Football fans are thus in for a heart-pounding conclusion to the current edition of Italy’s top competition.
