Roma’s inconsistent run of form continued on Wednesday evening as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Sassuolo.
But after the game, Mourinho made it clear that he was unhappy with one of his Roma players, who he refused to name, and claimed his squad have been ‘betrayed’ by one of their teammates.
‘We had a good performance, with a positive, professional, serious attitude. The last two days were difficult,’ Mourinho said.
‘It was a team that wanted to win against a tough opponent, I am sorry that the efforts of the team were betrayed by the attitude of one unprofessional player.
‘You didn’t see me talking that way about Roger Ibanez against Lazio, because errors are part of the game, his attitude was never a problem.
‘An unprofessional attitude that is not fair to his teammates, that is what disappoints me. A point away from home is still not a negative result and I am happy with the general attitude of my squad.’
When asked who in his squad he was criticising, Mourinho replied: ‘I won’t tell you.
‘I had 16 players on the field tonight and I liked the attitude of 15 of them. I told the other than he had this attitude today only and not always. Now we want to close this period of the season with three points.
‘In January, he needs to find himself another club.’
