Mourinho’s AS Roma under investigation over behaviour of players
Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma are reportedly under investigation by federal prosecutors for anti-sporting chants and the behaviour of their players after their bus parade celebrating the 2021/22 UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) glory.
Roma defeated Feyenoord 1-0 to win the UECL on Wednesday night in Albania.
Nicolo Zaniolo scored the winner for the Serie A side in the first half of the encounter.
