Mourinho sent off for mocking opposite bench
AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho was back to his old tricks yesterday as he was shown a straight red in stoppage time for mocking Monza's bench.
Moments after Stephan El Shaarawy scored a late winner for Roma, Mourinho turned to the opposition bench and taunted them with gestures that they talk too much and cry too much.
Mourinho was swiftly shown a straight red card and he will now miss Roma's next match against Inter Milan, his former team.
"I made some gestures, I said nothing offensive,' he told Sky Italia afterwards. It was because last season some talented people, but lacking in experience, had some nasty words about us," he said.
Referee Giovanni Ayroldi added on seven minutes at the end and that sparked an altercation between Mourinho and Monza manager Raffaele Palladino.
Palladino would then make a plea to the referee, which later triggered Mourinho's 'cry baby' gesture.
'You talk a lot and then you cry,' Mourinho is said to have told Palladino, according to Roma Press. –Daily Mail
