After the first leg ended 1-0 in Roma’s favor, Bayern Leverkusen knew they had to score in the second leg, but Jose Mourinho had other plans. The Roma Manager approached the game very defensively. Roma did not have any shot on target. They had only 28% of the ball possession and played just one corner. In most phases of the game, Roma players were always in their “own” half. So, fans are reacting to Mourinho’s approach to the game. Even though it paid off in the end, some fans are calling Mourinho’s football negative.
