Italian footballer Antonio Cassano claims that Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho was never a great coach, with the Giallorossi boss said to have brought disaster after disaster to Roma


What did Cassano say about Jose Mourinho?

Roma were victorious in the last outing of Serie A, beating Empoli 2-0, but suffered a humiliating exit to the Coppa Italia quarter-finals just before when they went down 2-1 at home in Cremonense. The Portuguese coach has set big silverware during his stay in the Italian capital by winning the inaugural Europa League, but Antonio claims that Jose Mourinho – previously successful at Porto, the Blues, Inter, Real Madrid and the Red Devils – is not as good as he would have thought his record.

Antonio Cassano, who spent five productive years on matchdays with Roma, said that Jose Mourinho was never a great coach, he just knew how to play in the media and was a great communicator. According to him, Jose Mourinho is good at dealing with strong players, and not with those who are not very good. “It’s too easy to just be friends with great players,” the Italian continued. The other day, that performance made me want to rip.” Cassano says Jose Mourinho doesn’t know how to build a team. “Even with your second lineup, you have to beat Cremonese,” he said.


A little about the topic

Antonio also criticized the Portuguese’s treatment of Roma’s older stars Nicolo Zaniolo and Rick Karsdorp, who were both ostracized at the Stadio Olimpico: “It was Jose’s disaster with Rick, putting him in the reserves, breaking up and insulting him in front of everyone. Now Karsdorp is back, who knows why “So it was one mess. As for Nicolo, he gets to talk about it, not why his Giallorossi team plays like cr*p. For a year and a half this gypsy side hasn’t been playing proper football.”


Portuguese assistant coach Salvatore Foti has been banned from the touchline for a month after losing his temper after losing to Cremonese.


How was everything?

Salvatore came under a lengthy ban for his actions after the Giallorossi’s loss to Cremonese in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals. Jose’s assistant was punished for abusive insults directed at match officials, threats of conduct against head coach Cremonese, and for screaming blasphemous insults after he was sent off.


The Italian Football Federation has confirmed that Salvatore has been banned for repeated offensive language against referee Fabbri. It was also noted that Salvatore Foti used threatening sentences against the manager of the opposing team, as well as repeated blasphemous language when he left the dugout after being sent.


Foti will miss several games

It’s not the first time Salvatore has been in hot water. Roma manager Jose Mourinho was forced to apologize for his assistant’s actions back in April last year after he taunted Salernitana and told a member of their staff that they would soon be fired. Now Salvatore will miss some of the most important Serie A games, as well as a trip to Cremonese at the end of the month.
