AS Roma's victory fast ends, Jose Mourinho: Nothing Special

AS Roma finally achieved their first win in the 2023/2024 Italian League. According to manager Jose Mourinho, this moment was 'nothing special'. Roma ended their winning streak extraordinarily. The Giallorossi were able to beat Empoli badly in the 4th week of the 2023/2024 Italian League.

The goal feast created by Roma at home was not half-hearted. Paulo Dybala et al finished the match at the Stadio Olimpico with a score of 7-0. With these positive results, Roma rose to 12th position in the standings with four points from 4 matches. That means, Roma only collected one point from the previous three matches, the side suffered two defeats and was only able to achieve one draw.

The only team that managed to force Roma to share points in week 1. After that, they were helpless against Hellas Verona (1-2) and AC Milan (1-2). This negative trend had kept Roma in the relegation zone, to be precise in 18th place before the match week 4. For Mourinho, Roma did not immediately become an extraordinary team with a landslide victory just now. Some things still need to be addressed for the next match.

"Today we are not the team that people have said in the last few weeks, nor am I a bad coach as in the last few weeks," said Mourinho. "But today, the team and I didn't immediately turn into something extraordinary," he said via the club's official website. Naturally, Roma's landslide victory was not recorded against a stronger team, but against a team whose illness was worse.

Before facing Roma, Empoli always lost the first three matches and never scored a goal. This bad record continued until after fighting Roma. "All the players played well, but winning 7-0 doesn't show that our performance was that good," explained Mourinho.
