After suffering the worst start of his career, Mourinho was mired in the vortex of class. In the early hours of this morning, the home game against super-weak side Frosinone was the perfect time for Mourinho and Roma to complete their redemption. If it is not won, then the crisis in Roma will explode completely, and Mourinho is likely to leave class. If Jose Mourinho leaves class, Roma's two-year rebuild is likely to go down the drain.
In order to win, Mourinho did not have any reservations and sent the strongest squad of Roma, with all the main players starting the game. Jose Mourinho's sister-in-law Dybala and Romelu Lukaku did not disappoint him, and even Pellegrini scored.
Without a doubt, the biggest contributor to the team's victory was Dybala, who contributed two assists, but this time I would like to focus on Lukaku.
In the first half, Roma had the overall advantage, but were unable to break through the opponent's goal. The players led by Pellegrini became more and more anxious, but fortunately Lukaku stepped up in time to help Roma break the deadlock with personal strength.
Under the pocket of two away players, Romelu Lukaku received the ball in the box, but he was unhurried, got rid of it with a beautiful smash, and then got up and volleyed, perfect!
Seeing Lukaku's goal, Mourinho's pressure was instantly released, and he hurried to take a sip of water to suppress his shock. As Roma manager, I have suffered so much pressure over the past month that I can take a breather.
Although Jose Mourinho led Roma to the European final for two consecutive seasons, he even turned down a high-paying offer from Saudi Arabia and chose to stay in Rome. However, when the results were not good, Roma fans and senior management still put a lot of pressure on Mourinho, believing that Mourinho did not bring Roma a promotion, let alone a tactical improvement.
As Jose Mourinho's favourite and Serie A's No. 1 centre-forward, Romelu Lukaku did not relent at crucial moments and opened the door to victory for Roma. Romelu Lukaku has made six appearances for Roma this season, scoring four goals, which is really efficient. With Tammy Abraham suffering a serious injury, Mourinho has always wanted to buy a striker, but has never had a good option. Unexpectedly, in the end, Lukaku can come! Now, with the combination of Romelu Lukaku and Dybala, Roma's attack is bound to get better and better.
Lukaku is physically very strong and rarely injured, but his partner Dybala has a glass physique. If it weren't for the fact that there was really no one available, Mourinho would not have started Dybala in this game. Fortunately, Dybala provided two assists to help the team win without fully recovering. More importantly, although Dybala was tired, he ended up in danger and did not suffer another injury.
When Dybala was substituted, Mourinho ran over to hug him as soon as possible. It can be said that Roma's results depend on Dybala's health, and as long as Dybala can remain healthy, Roma still has hopes of competing for the top four in Serie A. If Dybala misses more than a quarter of the matches, Roma will most likely be in seventh place again.
How Mourinho makes good use of Romelu Lukaku and Dybala, and how he defends well, is the key to success this season.
