José Mourinho gathered his players in the middle of the pitch for a motivational speech after their 3-2 defeat in the Rome derby.
Goals of Roger Ibanez and Jordan Veretout were not enough for the Giallorossi as they suffered their second loss of the season against their city rivals.
While Maurizio Sarri ran under the Curva Nord holding an eagle, the club’s mascot in front of his fans, the Special One urged his players to gather in the middle of the pitch where he held a motivational speech.

However, the former Tottenham and Manchester United boss refused to reveal what he told his players at the end of the match.
“It’s something confidential, just like everything we tell each other inside the dressing room,” Mourinho told DAZN.
“I wanted to do it there [on the pitch] but it was the same as inside the dressing room.”
