Roma coach Jose Mourinho was happy after their 1-0 defeat of Salernitana.

Bryan Cristante struck for Roma on Sunday.

“I liked everything. Obviously, I would've been happier to win 3-0 or 4-0, but I liked seeing the team that didn't score the goals it should've done, yet still had the maturity to control the situation," said Mourinho in his press conference.

“Usually when you waste three or four chances, it ends badly, but in this case we did not even suffer. Dybala and Zaniolo could've had a couple of goals each, but I also cannot say they did not have a fantastic game."

Mourinho surprised with his substitutions as he took off his three attackers, Nicolo Zaniolo, Tammy Abraham and Paulo Dybala.

"There was evident fatigue, so the players I replaced them with – Matic, Wijnaldum – were not there to kill the game, they were there to control the situation.

“If you ask me, would I prefer to have strikers of the same level that I can replace the others with, of course I would. That is what Manchester City, Liverpool and a few Italian clubs can do."
