News, Tottenham 0 Roma 1: Jose Mourinho gets revenge on former club as Roger Ibanez scores only goal: detailed suggestions and opinions about Tottenham 0 Roma 1: Jose Mourinho gets revenge on former club as Roger Ibanez scores only goal.
JOSE MOURINHO got one over his old team as Tottenham ended their pre-season with defeat in Israel.
Spurs were coming up against Roma, managed by their old boss Mourinho, for their final friendly out in Haifa.
Centre-back Roger Ibanez headed home the only goal of what was a feisty game full of tasty tackles and a few fans running on the pitch.
Ivan Perisic impressed in the left wing-back position but overall it was a frustrating night for Antonio Conte’s side a week ahead of their season-opener at home to Southampton.
Conte promised in his pre-match press conference he would give old foe Mourinho a hug and did not disappoint as they embraced before kick-off.
The pair had exchanged a few digs when Mourinho was in charge of Manchester United and Conte was at Chelsea, but there was only mutual respect here – for the most part.
Mourinho was facing Spurs for the first time since being axed as their manager the week before the 2021 League Cup final.
