Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, was sent off for the second time in just four days during a heated derby against Lazio. The match also saw three more players receive red cards.
Mourinho's Roma team was knocked out of the Coppa Italia after a tense clash with Lazio. The defeat came after a controversial VAR review that led to a penalty-kick for Lazio, ultimately resulting in their victory. Mourinho was fuming with VAR and the decision to award the spot-kick.
The match was marred by intense clashes and altercations. Lazio star Pedro was shown a second yellow card after a scuffle with former Roma teammate Gianluca Mancini. Roma also lost Sardar Azmoun to a red card following a rough challenge. Mancini himself was later shown a red card for dissent.
This is not the first time Mourinho has been sent off recently. In fact, he was also sent off in a match against Atalanta just four days prior to the Rome derby.
Mourinho's contract with Roma is set to expire in June, and there have been no reports of a new deal being agreed upon.
