José Mourinho is unhappy with Roma’s depth and confirmed it during his press conference after the match against Juventus.

The Giallorossi suffered a 1-0 defeat at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday, so they now sit fourth, nine points behind leaders Napoli.

Roma have collected five wins and three defeats so far, with two of the losses coming in big games against Lazio and the Old Lady.

When asked about his use of substitution during the Allianz Stadium match, Mourinho’s reply was quite clear.

He did it again: Mourinho showed three fingers to Juventus fans

“There are benches and benches in Serie A,” he said.

“Today we played with Karsdorp who had been a doubt until the last moment and then we had Reynolds, Kumbulla and Calafiori.”

After that, he just stared at journalists for a few seconds before the end of his post-match presser.

It wasn’t hard to spot his disappointment regarding the team’s depth.

Roma were the highest spenders in Serie A in the summer as they invested €97.7m in new signings.

They secured the services of Tammy Abraham for €40m, Eldor Shomurodov (€17.5m), Matías Viña (€13m) and Rui Patrício (€11.5). In addition, they made Roger Ibañez and Bryan Reynolds’ moves permanent for €9m and €6.7m respectively.

    And so it begins…newcastle and that unlimited budget is calling. On another note Shomudurov is not going to be worth that fee.

    Failed and come up short in every 50/50 game this season. But it is never him. It’s always the players, the club, the league, the referees. zzzz

    Mou you are a dino…you should have been extinct by now. Apart from EPL 7 years ago (for what it’s worth, Less’ssister’s scity won next EPL) and a silly europa cup, you are full of $4it. No one respects you because you were like a poison ivy creating and spreading hatred. You are lucky to hold a job at Roma, and honestly they are like you somewhat, always hating on Juve. Get a penalty or don’t get a penalty , you both still hate on Juve. Because you are jealous, that is the realty. Now go become invisible to me cos I need to follow Juve on this promising run. \,,/

    Reynolds, Kumbulla and Calafiori would have been upset if they saw that post match press conference.
    It’s still early – getting in the top 4 must still be the objective this season and currently that is where Roma are. The next game against Inter is going to be decisive – for both teams.
