Serie A Lega sports judge Gerardo Mastrandrea has suspended José Mourinho, coach of Roma, for two games, after being sent off on Sunday in the game that the ‘giallorossi’ tied at the Olympic stadium against Torino (1-1).
Mou was punished, according to the statement, “for entering the field of play in the 44th minute of the second half, to protest an arbitration decision, adopting a threatening attitude towards the referee and repeatedly addressing him of a seriously offensive adjective”.
Mourinho himself admitted his mistake after losing his temper when protesting the failure to signal a clear foul in favor of Roma. “The red card is fair. I have the humility to apologize after the game, but I will not talk about the performance of the referee (Antonio Rapuano) and his hypothetical influence on the development of the game.”
For Mourinho, a repeat offender, his apology has not been able to avoid punishment and, unless it is dropped, he will have to watch from the stands on January 4 the games at the Olimpico against Bologna and the January 8 at San Siro against Milan, as soon as Serie A resumes after the break for the World Cup in Qatar.
