FilGoal | News | Mourinho admits after his 1000th game: I lied to everyone


Jose Mourinho, Roma coach, expressed his happiness at winning his 1,000th game in his coaching career, which came at the expense of Sassuolo with two goals to one in the fourth week of the Italian League.

“During this week I lied to myself a lot, I was saying it wasn’t a special match. It’s an important number for me and for sure I will always want to remember tonight as my 1000th match,” Mourinho told DAZN after the match.

“I didn’t want to remember a defeat. I was afraid to keep that memory forever. I lied to everyone. It was a great feeling in the end because this match could have ended 6-6, and Sassuolo could have won too.”

Regarding the match, the Portuguese coach said: “Roy (Patricio, Roma goalkeeper) gave us amazing saves, and we missed some easy chances. It was an extraordinary match for a neutral follower, think about what you set for someone like me.”

He explained about his celebration of the winning goal, “Tonight I did not feel that I am 58 years old, but 12.. This is the time when you dream of starting your football career. It was a childish run.”

Regarding the opponent, Mourinho said: “They have a very good coach and a very good team. They also have their own identity. I knew that since I started their studies at the beginning of the week. For us we achieved 3 important points, and maybe someone decided that I did not deserve a bad memory in this match.” .

The match was going to tie until Stephan El Shaarawy scored the winning goal in the killer time, specifically in the 91st minute.
