Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, had to be held back by his coaching staff before being sent off as they lost 1-0 to Atalanta on Sunday.

The 59-year-old stormed onto the pitch to confront the referee over a penalty call that didn’t go his team’s way.

Nicolo Zaniolo was brought down inside the box by Caleb Okoli in the 54th minute, but it was not given as a spot kick, and was instead issued as a foul the other way.

Mourinho was eventually issued with a red card by referee Daniele Chiffi.

The crowd responded to the incident by singing the name of their manager and cheering.

Roma were 1-0 down at this point after Giorgio Scalvini’s 35th minute goal, and it stayed this way despite the drama of the second half.
