“I only win the league 8 times, but this time it is Napoli” Mourinho is confident
AS Roma coach José Mourinho predicted Napoli’s victory.
Roma lost 1-2 in an away match in the 20th round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season against Napoli held at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples, Italy on the 30th at 4:45 am (Korean time).
Leading Napoli (53 points) widened the gap with second place Inter Milan (40 points) and increased their chances of winning. Roma (37 points) was able to rein in the pursuit of the top spot, but remained in 6th place.
After the match, coach Mourinho said, “We won sometimes without qualification, but I think we deserved to win today. The result is sad, but we must keep our minds together and move forward.”
“I repeat what I said yesterday. This team (Napoli) is because the star of the champion is shining at the decisive moment,” he said. “I know about that star. I won the league title eight times, and there were tough moments. This season, the star is in Naples,” he said, virtually predicting victory.
Napoli have played 20 matches this season, winning 17, drawing 2 and losing 1. It seems to be following the pursuit of competitors by continuing the winning streak. Inter Milan, the opponent, lost 1-2 to Cremonese at the bottom on the 29th. AC Milan was also caught in Sassuolo. 토토사이트
Even Mourinho’s Roma could not stop Napoli’s potential. Napoli took the lead in the 17th minute with Victor Osimen’s fantastic volley. In the 30th minute of the second half, Stéphane El Sharawi scored an equalizer for Roma, but the balance did not last long. Substitute Giovanni Simeone opened the Roma goal with a left-footed shot in the 41st minute of the second half.
Mourinho pointedly praised Osimen. He said, “Osimen is very difficult to deal with. He is an amazing and strong player,” he said with a thumbs up.
Napoli, which finished its schedule in January, is expected to spend a relatively easy February. Napoli will go on an expedition to Spezia (17th) on the 5th of next month. After that, they meet Cremonese (20th) and Sassuolo (15th) in turn. If you accumulate victory points step by step, it is expected that you will get closer and closer to winning.
