“You’re Not Intelligent At All” – Roma Manager Jose Mourinho Blasts Journalist During Press Conference

Roma manager Jose Mourinho lashed out at a reporter in a press conference ahead of his team’s away trip to Serie A rivals Venezia on Sunday.

The Portuguese coach’s team have been struggling lately, winning just two of their last five league games to slip 12 points behind leaders Napoli and AC Milan .

Journalist Marco Juric asked Mourinho: “It’s been six months since you signed for Roma, would you change anything that you’ve done in terms of choices, statements, requests or anything that you’ve done?”

Juric is a well-respected reporter in Italy and has worked for Sky Sports, Gianluca Di Marzio’s website and Radio Sport.

Mourinho replied: “You are here in practically every press conference, but either you are very intelligent and you want people to think you are not or you are not intelligent at all.

“I want to think you’re intelligent but you like to do what you do.”

Mourinho then stormed out of the press conference to end another bizarre incident for the former Manchester United , Chelsea and Tottenham manager.

His poor outburst comes just days after he ranted at former Premier League striker and journalist Jan Age Fjortoft following Roma’s 2-2 draw Bodo/Glimt.

Mourinho’s team were denied two penalties and needed a late Roger Ibanez goal to keep their Europa Conference League hopes alive.

When asked by Fjortoft what the referee did wrong, the Roma boss said: “Did you watch the game?”

The journalist replied in the tense exchange: “Yes, of course, but I want it from you. What did you see from your point of view?”

Mourinho recently received a touchline ban for his behaviour towards referees and faces a further punishment after taking to Instagram to complain about the consistency of officials.

His Instagram post was a surprise as, speaking after Roma’s recent 2-1 home defeat to AC Milan, the manager refused to give his opinion as he didn’t want another touchline ban.

Mourinho told reporters: “I want to be on the bench on Sunday and I don’t want a disciplinary action against me. That’s why I don’t want to talk.


“I congratulate Milan, who won. Seeing that there is no respect for the Roma players is hard, respect that we have is the respect that everyone should have but it is not like that.

“In a game where we did not play well in the first half and against a good team, there was no respect for the Roma fans.”

Mourinho will be on the bench for Roma’s trip to Venezia, though, and is wary on the threat the relegation-threatened club pose.

He told reporters on Thursday: “Venezia are a very balanced team, I think they will remain in their current position, in other words stay in Serie A.

“They don’t have weaknesses, they play good football, have principles and want to play out from the back. They are also dangerous on the counter, so it will be difficult for us.”
