Roma coach Mourinho confident overturning Bodo/Glimt lead in second-leg

Roma coach Jose Mourinho was unhappy after their Europa Conference League defeat at Bodo/Glimt.

Roma had taken the lead here through Lorenzo Pellegrini, but Bodo/Glimt turned it around through an Ulrik Saltnes deflection on the Brice Wembangomo effort and a late Hugo Vetlesen header.

“The two goals were from a set play and a deflection. We score a lot of goals from set play too, but it’s a good one to score, a bad one to concede. The first goal was ridiculous,” Mourinho told Sky Italia.

“To be honest, the thing that worries me the most is the injury for (Gianluca) Mancini. It’s a concern, it’s something caused by playing on a plastic turf.

“I have total faith in my players, in the stadium, the support from our people. Obviously, Bodo/Glimt are a difficult team, but I also have faith we will have a good referee and assistant in the second leg.

“When we played in Rome against them, were two very clear penalties for us that the referee did not see, while today there were two moves that were flagged offside and the first half ended with a ridiculous situation as the offside flag was up on a throw-in, which shows you the level.”
