“Everything seems to be going against us lately.”

Those who expected, after the resounding rout suffered in the Europa League at the hands of Ludogorets Razgrad, a Jose Mourinho on a rampage, styled after the blowout suffered last year against Bodo/Glimt, may have been disappointed. This time the Special One, in post-match commentary, instead of using the stick used the carrot toward his players.

“I don’t want to say we had a fantastic match, but certainly enough to win or not lose. We had opportunities after their goal and also in the last minutes. We had a great reaction, the equalizer had come but everything seems to be going against us lately. Luckily there are 6 games, whoever wins the first one is favored, whoever loses it has more pressure. Next week with HJK we need 3 points,” the Portuguese began at Sky Sports microphones.

“I don’t like to talk about the defensive department, it’s the whole team that defends. To tell the truth, the second goal is an emotional consequence, it’s out of context and it turned a draw into a defeat,” concluded the Lusitanian coach, who then wanted to dedicate a memory to Queen Elizabeth, who passed away during the Giallorossi’s match: “I’m sorry, I’m not a foreigner in England, it’s my home. The Queen is a figure everyone respects, she was a great lady, I’m sorry.”
