Serie A: Jose Mourinho wants a female star in his Roma first team.

Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, has stated that he would like to see a female player, Carina Wenninger, in his squad.

Roma is currently dealing with an injury crisis and managed to draw 1-1 at home against AC Milan on Saturday.

Tammy Abraham scored the game-winning goal for Roma in the 93rd minute, but it was cancelled out by a 97th-minute equaliser.

The result means Roma maintains their fifth place and below AC Milan all on 57 points as both teams fight it out for a top-four finish to qualify for the Champions League.

Roma have just six Serie A games left and Mourinho wishes he could turn to female centre-back Wenninger, who has been outstanding throughout the season.

The 32-year-old Wenninger joined Roma on loan from Bayern Munich and has heaps of experience.

She helped Bayern win the Frauen-Bundesliga three times as well as the DFB-Pokal Frauen.

Addressing his post-match press conference after their draw with Milan, Mourinho said: “The women’s team just won the Scudetto.

“They have a very good centre-back who played for Bayern Munich [Wenninger], maybe she can play for us!”

“If we only talk about the performance, then I say the result is unfair to us,” the Portuguese added when discussing the result in general
