A late Stephan El Shaarawy’s goal gave Roma their third win in three Serie A games in Mourinho’s 1,000th match as a coach.
After the game, the Special One admitted he had lied to himself during the week, saying that the match against Sassuolo was not important, adding that he was afraid of losing it.

“I was terrified the eternal memory would be of a defeat,” he told DAZN.
His run under the Curva Sud after El Shaarawy’s goal is already one of the most iconic moments of the campaign.

The technical staff and the club’s owner Dan Friedkin are also attending the dinner, reports Gazzetta.it.
As per Repubblica.it, the players opted to go out on Tuesday so their preparation for Thursday’s Conference League clash against CSKA won’t be affected.
