Jose Mourinho shown red card in heated AS Roma friendly vs Real Betis



Jose Mourinho was shown a red card during AS Roma’s heated pre-season friendly against Real Betis on Saturday night..

The legendary Portuguese coach, who was appointed Roma manager in May after being sacked by Tottenham one month earlier, entered the pitch at the Estadio Benito Villamarin after Alex Moreno appeared to score with his hand to put Betis 3-2 up.

Mourinho was furious that the referee had allowed the goal to stand and stormed onto the pitch demanding answers.

With VAR not in use, the match officials obviously missed Moreno’s alleged handball on the goal-line.

Roma’s players were just as furious as their manager and Lorenzo Pellegrini was sent off for his protestations. The Italian midfielder sarcastically shook the ref’s hand before walking off the pitch.

The referee then saw Mourinho coming towards him and flashed the red card in the Roma boss’s face before he even had a chance to speak.
