Mourinho Slams VAR As Roma Lose Derby To Lazio

Jose Mourinho has lashed out at the Virtual Assistant Referee, VAR, after his side AS Roma lost 3-2 in a derby against Lazio in the Italian Serie A.

Lazio led the game from the 10th minute to the point of seeing Mourinho record his second loss since taking charge of Roma this summer.

A foul that led to a goal scored by former Roma player, Pedro, was criticised by the Portuguese manager after the game.

“Italian football has improved a lot. But unfortunately, the referee and VAR were not at the right level for this fantastic match,” Mourinho told reporters.

“On the 2-0 goal it could have been 1-1, the referee and VAR made a mistake. This is too much.

“The lack of a second yellow for Leiva is also important. It was a similar situation to Pellegrini, he got a red but today there was nothing.

“We were the better team on the pitch. Obviously when you concede three goals, something has gone wrong, but the second and third were counter-attacks.

“We tried, we dominated. We gave everything and put Lazio in difficulty,” Mourinho said.
