And the network “Opta” specialized in football statistics, stated that for the first time a team coached by Mourinho received six or more goals in one match, with the Portuguese coach reaching the 1008th match in his career.
“I am the one who decided to play in that squad, so I take responsibility,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
He added: “I did it with good intentions, in order to give opportunities to those who worked hard and also to rotate in the team that played the match on a field covered with synthetic turf and in cold weather.”
“Simply put, we lost against a team that played better than us today,” Mourinho continued.
Roma have six points in second place in the group, one point behind leaders Bodo Glimt, in the group that also includes Bulgarian CSKA Sofia and Ukraine’s Zorya Lugansk.
