Jose Mourinho makes moody Roma players pose for a picture in the dressing room after the devastating late defeat to Napoli
ROMA players had to take a group photo after losing to Serie A leaders Napoli.
The Stars were lured into taking the snap by manager Jose Mourinho, who hopes it will motivate his players in the next game.
Roma suffered defeat after Giovanni Simeone’s 86th-minute strike gave the Napoli a 2-1 win.
It’s normal to see team photos from the dressing room after they’ve won, but it’s quite a sight after a loss.
Mourinho uploaded the picture to his Instagram page for his 3.1 million followers.
I was captioned: “What a TEAM, what a SPIRIT, what an ACHIEVEMENT.
“Let’s go… See you Wednesday at the Olimpico.”
Many of the stars were seen with miserable faces after the loss.
But fans were still happy with their performance, with one commenting: “C’mon Rome, today more than ever. The most important thing is to bring your soul into it.
“If you lose yourself like that, it’s nobody’s fault 💪.”

A second wrote: “Great match, intensity, guts, sacrifice. We deserved the draw, we played it, it’s okay. Come on 💪💛❤️.”
A third said: “A team of men and not mounted and spoiled. COME BIG ROMA💛❤️.”
A fourth added: “It’s a shame… but happy birthday to all the boys. We showed some respect!!! Always go to Rome 🧡❤️👏🏼.”
The capital club had felt they deserved a point after Stephan El Shaarawy struck in the 75th minute to nullify Victor Osimhen’s impressive opener.
The defeat leaves Roma in 6th place in Serie A, but just a point behind Lazio in third and three points behind second-placed Inter Milan.
