Roma boss Mourinho on Udinese draw: I knew after first minutes we would struggle

Roma boss Jose Mourinho was left disappointed after their 1-1 draw against Udinese.

The Friulani had taken the lead through a Nehuen Perez, but Lorenzo Pellegrini converted a penalty in injury time for Marvin Zeegelaar’s handling offence.

“I thought hopefully we had another two or three minutes to play and win,” Mourinho told DAZN.

“The game was not a surprise, because I already knew Udinese would play this way. After a couple of minutes, I realised my analysis was not wrong.

“We really got into the match with substitutions, fresh legs and I saw some players were really struggling after playing on Thursday in the Conference League, as Udinese had all week to prepare.

“It was a difficult match, I got the feeling if we had scored earlier, we’d have turned it around, but unfortunately it came late.

“Now we are unbeaten in eight Serie A games, four wins and four draws. If someone thinks a point away to Udinese or Sassuolo is disappointing, the fact is these are precious points in difficult situations and not defeats.”
