Jose Mourinho

Roma coach Jose Mourinho was left frustrated with their performance in defeat to Lazio.

Mourinho lamented a lack of aggression from his players.

He said, “It wasn’t easy to play against a team that sat so deep and controlled the tempo very well.

“They defended well after taking the lead and we lacked sharpness as well as the quality that can make the difference in attack.

“It’s not just the goals that we are lacking, but also playing as a team and winning individual duels around the pitch. When you play in a very direct fashion, you need to win the individual duels, and we didn’t do that today.”

Mourinho added: “I think Roma lose those games undeservedly. Atalanta had one shot on goal and won 1-0, Napoli had more problems than they’ve ever had and won with a great goal from Victor Osimhen, while Lazio scored a half-goal.

“We lack sharpness, I will admit that, but the identity to fight for a great result is untouchable.”
