It was the 1008th match for the Portuguese helmsman, his team has never collected half a dozen before.
“We lost to a team that showed better quality on the field. I expected to perform much better and we will be a balanced opponent to the Norwegian opponent. I am responsible for the debacle. Each loss will leave scars, it will be difficult to shake. In the cabin I was honest and honest with the players, “ said Mourinho for uefa.com.
After Thursday’s embarrassment, he admitted that the cold weather and artificial grass were insurmountable obstacles for AS Roma players: “We couldn’t adapt to the tough conditions. We play a lot of matches in a short sequence, I try to rotate the team. I blame them for the debacle, because it’s up to me what line-up we’ll play in.” Bodö / Glimt is at the top of the C-group table with seven points. The Romans are losing one point to another.
Another surprise was provided by the Dutch team Vitesse Arnhem in the basic eleven with the Slovak representative Matúš Berom, who defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the G-group.

Maximilian Wittek made a bid to take the lead as a ball coming in on the right hand side left Maximilian Wittek completely alone with keeper Arnhem, who made a spectacular block.
Tottenham was toothless on the offensive. Bryan Gil was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper. “Already in the first half we felt that we could play a balanced game with Tottenham. We came out against the opponent with a high attack, which was effective. We score a goal. I consider our victory deserved. “ said the hero Arnhem to the Dutch media.
