Maldini and his first Serie A goal: It felt weird but the outcome was great
Check out the press conference featuring Daniel Maldini who comments his first 2021-22 Serie A goal.
Jose Mourinho has challenged Tammy Abraham to build on his performance in the Rome derby after the former Chelsea striker netted twice in a 3-0 win.
Abraham opened the scoring for Roma in the first minute of Sunday’s clash with Lazio. That was the fastest goal ever recorded in a Serie A Rome derby.
Abraham doubled his tally with a volley in the 22nd minute to take his tally to 15 league goals for the season, with Lorenzo Pellegrini adding a third for Mourinho’s team before half-time.
With Roma in such control before the break, their supporters in the Curva Sud began chanting “ole” at every pass, though Mourinho was visibly frustrated by this.
There was a curious moment just before half-time when Mourinho was furious with the Roma ultras in the Curva Sud, demanding they stop making mocking ‘ole’ chants at every pass.
Roma’s win lifted them to fifth in Serie A, putting them in prime position to secure a Europa League place.
Lazio, meanwhile, are two points behind in seventh. Maurizio Sarri was furious with his side’s reaction to conceding after 56 seconds.
