“Since the men’s team’s center back is injured, should I use the women’s team’s center back?”.
AS Roma drew 1-1 against AC Milan in the 2022-2023 Serie A round 32 held at the Olimpico Stadium in Rome, Italy on the 30th (Korean time).
With the draw that day, Roma tied with Milan in points (57 points) and points (+14), but fell behind in points (Milan +52, Roma +44) and fell to 5th place.
The 90 minutes of regular time was boring, but the extra time in the second half was the best theater ever.
Roma opened the scoring with Tammy Abraham’s shot in the 4th minute of added time in the second half, but in the 7th minute of added time in the second half, Alexis Salemaicus equalized the match and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
However, from the standpoint of Roma, once again, a player who collapsed due to injury came out. Starting center back Marash Kumbula collapsed in the 15th minute and left the field as a substitute for Edorod Bob.
After the game, Roma coach Jose Mourinho emphasized, “Even a draw is not a bad result. Also, in a situation where we lost several players due to injuries, just continuing the fight for 4th place is great enough.” ㅋㅋㅋ벳
He added, “Of course, we only had 1 point when we could have scored 3 points, but we are proud rather than sad. Thanks to our players’ amazing fighting spirit, we are still fighting for 4th place.”
Against Milan, another Roma defender, Marash Kumbula, went down with an injury. In a situation where Christian Smalling and Diego Llorente were already missing, the center back resources were wiped out as even Kumbula fell.
Regarding the defense situation in the team, Mourinho joked, “Maybe in the Roma women’s team, there was a good central defender who played for Bayern Munich.”
