Mourinho admits he was afraid of losing his 1,000th game as Roma go top
The Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted he was scared of losing his 1,000th career game as a coach.
The 58-year-old saw his side beat Sassuolo 2-1 on Sunday, thanks to Stephan El Shaarawy’s late goal.
The win took Mourinho’s career tally to 638 victories.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss has drawn 205 and lost 157 of his 1,000 games as a manager.
“I told everyone lies! I had been saying to the team for days that this 1,000th game was not important to me… but I had an incredible fear of losing!
“Luckily we won and I was running like a child today because I was feeling 12 years old, not 58,” he said after the game.
Roma are now top of Serie A, having won their first three fixtures.
