Jose Mourinho and all Roma players and staff are refusing to speak to the media after their 1-1 draw with Fiorentina, which saw Romelu Lukaku and Nicola Zalewski sent off.

It was not an entirely unexpected gesture, although the club is not calling it an official ‘press silence’.

Instead, DAZN noted that Mourinho walked through the media zone, saluted Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano and walked away.

The Giallorossi thought the evening was off to a perfect start when Lukaku met the Paulo Dybala flicked cross with a header from six yards after five minutes, but it was all downhill after that.

Dybala and Sardar Azmoun picked up injuries, Zalewski was sent off for two bookable offences, Lucas Martinez-Quarta nodded in the equaliser for Fiorentina and finally Lukaku was shown a straight red card for his reckless sliding tackle on Christian Kouame.

Down to nine men, they held on through seven minutes of stoppages for a 1-1 draw, which means they are now fourth alongside Bologna and edge one point closer to Milan in third.

Following a week in which Mourinho had criticised referee Matteo Marcenaro, claiming he did not have the “emotional stability” to officiate their match with Sassuolo, the coach was called for an in-person meeting with FIGC prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné.
