Jose Mourinho calls out one of his players, says “he needs to find himself another club”

In one of his most brutal press conferences to date, Jose Mourinho told one of his Roma players to leave the club for having a "unprofessional attitude."

Jose Mourinho, the former Manchester United, Chelsea, and Real Madrid manager, who has taken a more measured approach to the media in recent years, was irritated after his side drew 1-1 away to Sassuolo on Wednesday.

Tammy Abraham’s goal in the eightieth minute and Andrea Pinamonti’s equalizer in the eighty-fifth minute were all that could have been in a keenly tense contest. It was Abraham’s first league goal since September, ending his Giallorossi’s Serie A goalless streak of eight games.

Mourinho couldn’t hold back on his assessment of his team’s performance after the game, having been frustrated as he watched.

The 59-year-old was quoted saying an unnamed player “betrayed” his teammates with his attitude and told him to leave the club in January.

“It was a team that wanted to win against a tough opponent, I am sorry that the efforts of the team were betrayed by the attitude of one unprofessional player,” he told DAZN.

“An unprofessional attitude that is not fair to his teammates, that is what disappoints me. A point away from home is still not a negative result and I am happy with the general attitude of my squad.”

Roma‘s boss refused to identify the player when asked, but made sure to emphasise how disappointed he was.

“I won’t tell you,” he added. “I had 16 players on the field tonight and I liked the attitude of 15 of them. In January, he needs to find himself another club.”
