Jose Mourinho refuses post-match interview, vows to ‘have a nice dinner’

1 min read

Jose Mourinho was sent off after kicking away a ball in Roma’s 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona in Serie A on Saturday.

The Giallorossi, who were depleted due to injuries and a COVID-19 outbreak, had fought back from 2-0 down after goals from youngsters Cristiano Volpato and Edoardo Bove.

But Mourinho was not satisfied, given his marching orders by referee Luca Pairetto in second-half stoppage time.

Mourinho and Pairetto had clashed numerous times during the game, with the final straw coming when the Portuguese kicked a ball into the Stadio Olimpico crowd.

The former Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United and Inter boss declined to complete his post-game media duties and instead posted on social media.

“I love these people and for them, I fight,” Mourinho wrote on Instagram. “I don’t talk is better to go home and have a nice dinner. Have a good Sunday.”
