A paradox lies before Mourinho.
Is Rome useless or useless? In March, halfway through the Devil’s schedule, Mourinho is worried about a long list of injuries. At present, there are important players absent from the third-line positions except the goalkeeper. The media are talking about the need for Rome to make a rotation, but this is Mourinho’s embarrassment.
Rotation. Who? Take the midfield as an example. I’m afraid Marty Camara himself can’t remember the last time he played. Mourinho would rather let Cristante and Ma Diqi fight repeatedly than send him to play. Even the teenager Tasirovich has temporarily replaced him, while Camara has almost disappeared. Some media rumors that he is injured, but since 2023, he has been healthy enough to enter the big list and sit on the bench. Some critics say that Rome will use him only if it is necessary, mainly because he is worried that his appearances will be full.
Not only Camara, but also young players such as volpato and Tacirovich, who had been highly anticipated by Mourinho, have lost their chances in the standing list after a period of tempering. Young Beauvais was once in Mourinho’s plan, but he still couldn’t play the main role after the game was tempered. Rome had hoped to use him and volpato as additions to the purchase of Fratesi during the winter transfer.
Also gradually disappearing in the starting lineup is celik, the winner of the bid. celik has not played in four games since he came out after Rome defeated Verona’s substitute Solbakken 1-0 on February 20th. Some media have analyzed that the confidence of Turks has been affected since the goal against cremona, and the strong comeback of Karsdorp and the rapid growth of Zalewski have compressed the space of celik.
Of course, for coach Jose Mourinho, he is more aware of different tactics and player arrangements for different opponents, just like when he played against Real Society, he used Karsdorp accurately, which inspired the fighting spirit and energy of the Dutch. Similarly, Camara, Tasirovich and celik do not mean that they have been completely abandoned. They can only play when Mourinho thinks fit. In the past, many media questioned that Mourinho often went his own way and didn’t know how to rotate. In fact, Rome suffered from rotation at many times this season. In the two games against cremona, it happened that Mourinho tried to rotate, and the result was without exception.
This is also Mourinho’s embarrassment, rotation? Losing, not rotating? Lack of physical strength may lose the game. In desperation, he had to give up his own ban, so as to encourage and infect the only main lineup, and let them believe that they have the ability to conquer everything and believe in the strength of team and blood. However, his inner helplessness has long been revealed. At the press conference after the Europa League match, he envied Bayern’s substitute lineup and said that even if those people only gave him one player, it would be good. This is also his difficulty to some extent. In Rome, it is not that no one is available. The real problem is that some people are really useless.
