Mourinho’s Roma Suffers Humiliating Defeat To Bodo/Glimt

Jose Mourinho suffered one of the heaviest defeats of his managerial career as his Roma side were thrashed 6-1 by Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Roma trailed just 2-1 at the break after the Norwegian champions struck through Erik Botheim and Patrick Berg‘s curler, while Carles Perez replied with a clinical effort.

Mourinho made three changes at the start of the second half and another two on the hour mark after Bodo/Glimt added a third with Botheim tapping in from close range.

But there was more misery for Mourinho and Roma as Ola Solbakken‘s fine solo goal made it 4-1 before Amahl Pellegrino added a fifth and Solbakken claimed his second.

It is the first time a Mourinho side has conceded six or more goals in a single game in what was the 1,008th match of his coaching career.

However, Mourinho would have had one eye on this weekend’s Serie A clash with Napoli who top the table in Italy with eight wins in eight games.

Bodo/Glimt won the Norwegian title for the first time in their 104-year history last season.

Their fans have become great curiosities in the sport for their habit of waving giant, yellow toothbrushes in the stands.
