with VideoGeorginio Wijnaldum’s basic debut has turned out to be a major disappointment for AS Roma. The Italian top club went down at relegation candidate Cremonese (2-1) and suffered serious damage in the battle for the Champions League tickets. AS Roma is now the number 5 in Italy, but would have been (shared) second with a win.

Wijnaldum has recovered from a broken tibia, an injury he sustained in August. He therefore missed, among other things, the world championship in Qatar with the Orange.
Frank Tsadjout put the home club ahead after more than fifteen minutes. Leonardo Spinazzola made it 1-1 in the 71st minute. Cremonese took the lead again through Daniel Ciofani, who converted a penalty in the 83rd minute. The PhD candidate recorded the first win of the season in the 24th game.
Red Jose Mourinho
Rick Karsdorp came in for AS Roma in the 68th minute. Coach José Mourinho of the club from the capital received the red card for criticism of the lead. It was his third red card of the season. Afterwards, he elaborated on the reason for his performance down the line.
“I’m emotional, but not crazy,” the Portuguese begins on his employer’s site. “Something really needs to happen if I want to react like I did. The referee gave me a red card after the fourth official told him to do that. Unfortunately the fourth official is not so honest as to say what he said to me, how he said it and how he treated me. That’s where my reaction came from. I want to know if there is a recording of what he said. ”
,,I’m not going to mention that he’s from Turin, that we have to play against Juventus and that he doesn’t want me to be on the line. I’m not going to talk about that. I want to mention that for the first time in my career a referee, in this case the fourth official, spoke to me in an unacceptable way.”
Mourinho is still keeping to himself what the fourth official would have said. “I want to know if there are recordings of it.”
Wijnaldum recently made his comeback at AS Roma as a substitute. The Roman club has rented the 32-year-old midfielder from Paris Saint-Germain, where he hardly played. Wijnaldum caused a furore at Liverpool before his period in Paris. He played in the Netherlands at Feyenoord and PSV.
Juventus managed to grace Paul Pogba’s return with a victory. At home, the team of coach Massimiliano Allegri won 4-2 against fellow townsman Torino. When Pogba came in after almost eleven months of injury trouble, after 69 minutes, it was still 2-2 in an attractive derby. For Juventus, punished with points deduction for financial malpractice, it was the fourth consecutive victory in Serie A.
‘Juve’ fell behind twice. First by a goal from Yann Karamoh. After the equalizer by Juan Cuadrado, whose bet could not be turned by Perr Schuurs standing on the goal line, by Antonio Sanabria. On the stroke of half time, Alex Sandro equalized with a header.
Pogba, who returned to Manchester United last summer after six years, came on to cheers, after which Gleison Bremer’s header gave his team the lead. Adrien Rabiot made it 4-2, so that Juventus is now approaching the places that entitle it to European football.
