Mourinho calls for patience at Roma
After a quick start to the season under Jose Mourinho, things have slowed down at Roma despite the club currently occupying a spot in the top four.
Since winning their opening six games of the season across all competitions, Roma have lost five of their past 11 matches, while also drawing two. They go into this game with just one win in their past six games across all competitions, a run that has included a 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League and another draw with the Norwegian side in midweek.
But Mourinho isn’t worried by Roma’s lack of form, insisting the finishing touches will come.
“If a comparison is made between the number of goals scored and the chances created, there is obviously a contradiction,” he told reporters.
“There are teams that play less in possession and create very little, but are more cynical. Right now we’re struggling to translate all the chances we create into goals.
“This is true. However, it would be more worrying if we did not have any opportunity or domination of the game. It would be more troubling.
“If we score everything we create, maybe one day we will have another result. A little patience and tranquility.”
