Jose Mourinho left humiliated as Roma ship six goals to Norwegian minnows Bodo Glimt – Diverse Bulletin

Two-time Champions League winner Jose Mourinho endured arguably the lowest point of his illustrious career tonight as his Roma side shipped six goals to Scandinavian minnows Bodo Glimt. The underdogs, who executed a football fairytale in November 2020 by winning the Norwegian title for the first time in their 104-year history, pulled off one of the shocks of the season by handing out a drubbing to the Italians.

Mourinho was seemingly enjoying his trip to the Artic Circle yesterday, posing for photographs with locals in the snow following his press conference.

But his visit to the Aspmyra Stadion, which holds just 5635 spectators, ending in embarrassing style as the hosts ran riot in the second half.

Bodo went 2-0 up in the first half courtesy of goals from Erik Botheim and Patrick Berg before Carlos Perez pulled one back for Roma.

But after the break, the Norwegian champions really took things up a notch as they rifled in four more goals to put some extra gloss on the scoreline.

Addressing the press after the game in Norway, Mourinho surprisingly claimed Bodo had more quality than the side he fielded.

“Bodo/Glimt has more quality than us, at least tonight it was like that,” he said.

“The starters of our opponents have more quality than the team I sent on the field today from the first minute.”

Mourinho has found himself linked with the Newcastle hot-seat since the completion of the £305million takeover but he was keen to put the rumours to bed ahead of the game.

“No. Absolutely not,” he told Sky Italia when asked if he would be interested in the job.

“I signed for three years and nothing can make me leave these lads.”

Mourinho had previously talked up the Magpies, citing his unique relationship with Sir Bobby Robson and that has sparked optimism in some quarters that the Portuguese is interested in the project.

“On Newcastle, I don’t have anything to say. Absolutely nothing to say,” he said.

“The only thing I can say is that for many, many years, I worked with one of the most important figures in the history of Newcastle, Sir Bobby Robson, and so because of that I have always had a bit of an emotional connection with that city and that fanbase. But it’s nothing more than that.”
