After suffering from Roma’s first-ever home defeat at home to AC Milan, head coach Jose Mourinho walked out of the post-match interview.

Jose Mourinho blasted out of the post-match interview following Roma’s loss to AC Milan on Sunday. 

This was the Portuguese manager’s first home defeat in his Serie A managerial career. Roma went undefeated at Stadio Olimpico for 43 games before falling to a Zlatan Ibrahimovic incited win for the visitors.

Actually, Mourinho was upset with the decisions made by the match officials, especially those from Fabio Maresca. The 58-year-old then refused to continue talking at the post-match interview because he knew that there was a risk of suspension.

“Compliments to Milan,” Mourinho told DAZN after the final whistle. “I don’t want to say anything else, because otherwise, I won’t be on the touchline next week.

“I am angry at the lack of respect shown to the Roma fans. We did not play well, but we left everything on the pitch. We have that respect, others do not, and that angers me. That is all.”

Finally, Mourinho simply cut short his interview while adding: “I made an effort and did not wait for the referee.”
