One of the most prominent football managers in the world of football recently suffered a vast loss in the Europa Conference League, and it has raised lots of noise. Jose Mourinho suffered a heavy 6-1 loss in the Europa Conference League against Bodo/Glimt. The Portuguese endured one of the most serious defeats of his managerial career and certainly the most surprising one.
AS Roma trailed just 2-1 at the break after the Norwegian champions struck through Erik Botheim and Patrick Berg’s curler, while Carles Perez replied with a clinical effort. Jose Mourinho made three changes at the start of the second half and another two on the hour mark after Bodo/Glimt added a third, with Boeheim tapping in from close range.
Just when the former Manchester and Chelsea manager thought he had seen it all then, Ola Solbakken’s fine solo goal made it 4-1 before Amahl Pellegrino added a fifth and Solbakken claimed his second. It is the first time Mourinho has conceded six or more goals in a single match in the whole 1,008th match of his coaching career.
Jose Mourinho Suffers Heaviest Defeat in his Career
It sits alongside the 5-0 loss his Real Madrid side suffered against Barcelona in 2010 as one of the most significant defeats for Mourinho as a manager. Reacting to this, Mourinho said: “I decided to play with this line-up, so the responsibility is mine.” “I did it with good intentions, to allow those who work hard and to rotate the squad on a synthetic pitch in cold weather.”
“I never disguised the fact we were a squad with real limitations. We have 13 players who represent one team. The others are on a different level. “We lost against a team that showed more quality on the night. It’s that simple.”
