'He's a SCUMBAG': Antonio Cassano reignites Mourinho feud

‘I hope he never comes back to Italy, he’s a SCUMBAG’: Antonio Cassano reignites his long-running feud with Jose Mourinho as he blasts him for harassing ref Anthony Taylor, claiming he’s ‘RUINED the image of Roma’

  •  Antonio Cassano objected to Mourinho’s antics after Roma’s Europa League loss
  •  Cassano’s comments are the latest in a long-running feud between the pair
  •  Mourinho’s future with the club is yet to be decided with interest elsewhere

Antonio Cassano resumed his ongoing war of words with Jose Mourinho with a blistering rebuke of the Portuguese amid uncertainty surrounding his future with the  Serie A club.

The ex-Roma man responded to Mourinho’s antics in the aftermath of their Europa League defeat, where the head coach could be spotted hurling abuse at referee Anthony Taylor having waited for him in the car park.

And led to the English referee and his family needing protection to escape the clutches of baying Giallorossi fans at the airport the next day. 

Cassano, who spent five years in the Italian capital between 2001 and 2006, reckoned Taylor lost control of the bad-tempered affair but ultimately lay the blame for the unsavoury scenes squarely at the feet of Mourinho.

‘The referee got some things wrong but in the same way that players can miss goals,’ Cassano said while a guest on Christian Vieri’s BoboTv Twitch channel.

The Roma manager then waited for the official n the car park to berate him for his decisions 

‘I think Taylor struggled with the task at hand. Everything that happened afterwards began with Mourinho, he went to the carpark to protest and confront the referee. 

‘We’ve all seen the videos and that fed into Roma fans harassing Taylor and his family the next day at Budapest airport.’

Mourinho had been expected to leave Roma at the end of the season but reports in recent days have raised the possibility of him remaining in Rome. The ex-Manchester United boss led the club to their maiden European trophy last season before mounting another impressive Euro campaign in this.

Nevertheless, Cassano is firmly of a mind that his time is done. Not just in Italy. The former Italian international hopes to have seen the last of Mourinho in the country altogether.

‘He said he is going on vacation,’ he added. ‘hopefully he won’t return to Italy anymore, he’s a scumbag.

‘In the past two years we’ve only seen fights and he has helped ruin the image of AS Roma and recent episodes have not served the club well.

‘I hope for my people, that Mourinho heads to Portugal and never returns to train in Italy.’
