What exactly happened?

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho did not hold back in his criticism of one specific player during his post-match interview after Roma endured a frustrating 1-1 draw against Sassuolo on Wednesday, November 9.

Roma looked to be on course for victory after Tammy Abraham scored his first Serie A goal since September with a brilliant header in the 80th minute.

However, it was Sassuolo who had the last laugh as Andrea Pinamonti scored five minutes later from a swift counterattack for the game to end in a 1-1 draw. Mourinho brutally criticized an unnamed player, saying his efforts betrayed the whole team.

Karsdorp's agent fired back

Sports Brief also reported that the agent of AS Roma defender Rick Karsdorp has revealed that he intends to seek answers from the club and the head coach Jose Mourinho over comments made recently.

There has been some growing sense of disquiet in the capital club after Mourinho blasted one player, following their frustrating draw against Sassuolo.

The agent of Karsdorp, Johan Henkes, said he was surprised by Mourinho's words and would seek clarification on why everyone thinks the manager's comments were aimed at his client.
