Soccer-Mourinho sent off as Roma ends Napoli's winning start to season

ROME (Reuters) - AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho was sent off to the stands as his side ended Napoli's winning start to the Serie A season following a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

In a tightly-contested affair, Roma created little. Tammy Abraham had the best of their chances, slotting wide from a good position in the first half.As a frustrating Roma struggled in the second half, it got too much for Mourinho late on, and he was sent off for protesting with the referee.

Nigerian striker Osimhen thought he had won it at the death, but his header was ruled out for offside, with the point for Napoli enough to move them back to the top of the standings, above AC Milan on goal difference.After making an impressive start to the season themselves, Roma have now won two of their last six league games to sit fourth.
