Mourinho in showdown talks with Roma owners after worst start in 43 years

Jose Mourinho held showdown talks with Roma owners on Monday, following their 4-3 loss to Juventus last weekend.

The hosts were leading 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico, before they conceded three goals in seven minutes.

Juve even had Matthijs De Ligt sent off with less than 10 minutes left, but Roma were unable to draw level.

The defeat was Mourinho’s ninth in his 21 games in charge thus far.

Pressure is beginning to mount on the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham boss, who now has eight points less than predecessor Paulo Fonseca had at this stage last season.

The Portuguese tactician has now presided over Roma’s worst start to a season in 43 years.

However, Roma chiefs have no intention of sacking Mourinho at the moment, according to Football Italia, despite meeting with him to discuss the club’s progress and vision.

Mourinho is said to have outlined his thoughts on the team and a detailed plan to take the next steps in their development.

This was backed by the club’s hierarchy, even though they are now nine points off Champions League places, with fourth place Atalanta also possessing a game in hand.
