Jose Mourinho laments on his side’s lose to Udinese
Mourinho insists that Roma was unlucky in their defeat to Udinese as he claims his team played better compared to the home team.
Mourinho experienced his heaviest Serie A defeat as Roma was beaten 4-0 by Udinese on Sunday.
“Today we were unlucky, we gave away two goals which decided the match,” he said.
“I’m talking about bad luck because at the start we were going strong with the opportunity created by Dybala, who for me was the best player on the pitch.
“It’s clear that after losing 4-0 someone can laugh, but he gave quality, he had character.
“I told the players that when Udinese go ahead, they are good at everything. They are good at defending themselves, managing the timing of the match, going on the counter attack, up to educating ball boys. We don’t have this last quality.
“A perfect match for them, a well-deserved victory, it’s hard for us but I prefer a 4-0 defeat than four 1-0 defeats.”
Mourinho on the other hand threw a jab at the referee claiming his style of officiating suited Udinese
“When you lose 4-0, it’s ridiculous to talk about the referee,” Mourinho said.
“I think it wouldn’t even be fair to say that we lost to the referee, we paid for the mistakes we made.
“I don’t hide from you that when it’s a physical match like this and the first yellow card goes to the artist of the match [Dybala], it’s a bit contradictory.
“My principle is always the same, before the matches I never talk about referees, after the match I can say that with him, our feeling is poor.
“But when we saw who he was we realised that he had a perfect feeling with Udinese, for how they play.
“But we didn’t lose to the referee, he didn’t play a disastrous match, he played a match at his level.”
