A furious Jose Mourinho stormed out of his post-match interview after Roma's 2-1 defeat against AC Milan out of fear that he "won't be on the touchline next week".

Mourinho's 43-game unbeaten home record in Serie A is over following the loss at Stadio Olimpico, in which his Giallorossi side fell a goal behind after 25 minutes.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who previously played under the Special One at Manchester United, first broke the deadlock for Milan with a well-struck free-kick.

The visitors then doubled their lead when Roger Ibanez bundled over Ibrahimovic inside the box, allowing Franck Kessie to sweep home from the penalty spot.

Theo Hernandez' sending off 25 minutes from time gave Roma a glimmer of hope, and Stephan El Shaarawy pulled one back for them in the third minute of stoppage time.

Yet in the end it proved too little too late for the hosts, who were unable to mount what would have been a sensational late comeback to salvage Mourinho's home record.

The Portuguese boss was handed his first loss in 43 Serie A home matches, which also included his previous stint at Inter Milan.

And following Roma's setback on Sunday night, their fourth league defeat of the season, Mourinho refused to answer questions from the DAZN studio out of fear that he would land himself in hot water.

“Compliments to Milan,” he said.

“I don’t want to say anything else, because otherwise I won’t be on the touchline next week.

“I am angry at the lack of respect shown to the Roma fans. We did not play well, but we left everything on the pitch.

"We have that respect, others do not, and that angers me.

“That is all.”

Mourinho's post-match press conference was just as abrupt, adding only one other sentence to go with his DAZN interview statement.

He said: “I made an effort and did not wait for the referee.”

The defeat was also Roma's first at home in the league since March, bringing an end to their 10-game unbeaten run.
