Serie A – After freaking out: Roma coach Mourinho suspended for two games

Rome (AP) – The sports court of the Italian soccer league Serie A has suspended AS Roma coach José Mourinho for two games and sentenced him to a fine of 20,000 euros.

Shortly before the end of the game on February 19 at home against Hellas Verona (2: 2), the Portuguese made “serious allusions” to the referee, the judges ruled on Tuesday. Mourinho also entered the field threateningly. As a result, the referee showed him the red card.

The trouble was probably due to the four minutes of overtime. For Mourinho – the “Special One” – that was probably not enough after his team had previously caught up from a 0-2 deficit. Rome’s goalkeeping coach Nuno Santos also suspended the court for two games for insulting the referee towards the end of the game. Club manager Tiago Pinto has been suspended until March 8 for tackling the referee in the players’ tunnel after the final whistle. He later apologized for it.
