The Portuguese coach of AS Roma, José Mourinho, who has directed more than 1,000 professional football matches, suffered the heaviest defeat of his entire career on Thursday after falling to Bodo Glimt (6-1) of Norway. The Portuguese, two-time Champions League champion and with multiple national titles in his record, had never conceded six goals in front of a team. Cinco received their Real Madrid at the hands of Guardiola’s Barcelona in 2009/10 at the Camp Nou, but did not make it to half a dozen.

This Thursday, the Norwegian champions changed history with a double by Erik Botheim that inspired a 6-1 victory in the new Conference League, the third European tournament created this year, and condemned Roma, fourth in Serie A, to one of the most notable defeats in its history.

“I decided to play with this lineup, so the responsibility is mine,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “I did it with good intentions, to give those who work hard a chance to rotate the squad on a synthetic pitch in cold weather. We lost against a team that showed more quality on the night. It’s that simple, ”added Mourinho.

Botheim opened the scoring and Patrick Berg doubled the lead. The exculé Carles Pérez cut distances at half an hour, but the locals swept after the break and things went from bad to worse for the Italians. Botheim and Ola Solbakken made it 4-1 in the 71st minute to leave Roma shivering.

The Italians were completely overturned when Botheim prepared the fifth for Amahl Pellegrino, who attended Solbakken’s second of the night two minutes later closing the account and a historic triumph for the Norwegian team, which is the leader of Group C in the Conference League. .
