Lazio have filed a complaint after being left unimpressed by José Mourinho’s behaviour during Roma Under-14s’ recent derby game against Lazio Under-14s.

A video of Mourinho inviting the Roma youngsters into the gym belonging to the first team went viral earlier this week however fresh updates have emerged about the manager’s conduct during the game.

Il Messaggero(via Corriere della Sera) reported that Mourinho booed one of the Lazio players when he was taking a penalty during the clash on Sunday.

Furthermore, Mourinho also instructed the Roma side to feign injury and use time wasting in order to see out the game and take home the three points.

Tobia Assumma, the head coach of the Lazio Under-14s, also criticised Mourinho, saying: “No, mister. This is not done.”

Mourinho is well-known for his antics on the touchline.

The former Chelsea boss has been sent off three times this season alone, most recently on Monday as Roma suffered defeat against bottom of the table Cremonese, who claimed their first win of the season.

He will now serve a two-game ban and has been fined €10,000 but said he can’t understand why he was given his marching orders.

“Unfortunately, the fourth official doesn’t have the honesty to say what he said to me, how he said it and the way he treated me, which obviously triggered my reaction,” he said.

“I’m emotional but not crazy. For the first time in my career a referee has spoken to me in an unjustifiable way.

“To have the reaction I had is because something happened. I need to know now if I can do something from a disciplinary point of view.”
