Jose Mourinho to journalists: We earn a lot more money than you!

Jose Mourinho yelled at a journalist after he refused to answer a question during a press conference following Roma's 3-0 defeat to Inter on Saturday.

Hakan Calhanoglu, former Roma striker Edin Dzeko, and Denzel Dumfries all scored in the first half to condemn an injury-plagued Roma to a second straight defeat just as they appeared to be regaining their form.

Mourinho canceled his pre-match news conference on Friday and refused to take questions, and when a journalist attempted to question Mourinho after the 3-0 loss, the former Inter manager launched an attack.

"I do not want to answer the question," Mourinho began.

"It's easy to ask questions like this, and obviously your job is easier and that's why we get a lot more money than you." 

The Portuguese boss then addressed the game and left the media room.

He said:

"They are stronger than us in normal conditions. In abnormal conditions they are much stronger," said Mourinho. 

"We made mistakes, the third goal is ridiculous, but as a coach, I have had many defeats, many negative feelings with my players.

"Whoever gives everything he has is not obliged to do more. The boys, with all their difficulties, did the best they could. I am with them. 

"In my opinion the referee was fine. He clearly did not impact the result. 

"The only thing he missed was a yellow card for Bryan Cristante because we must be far and away the dirtiest team in Serie A – it's incredible how many yellow cards we pick up. 

"Nevertheless, [the referee] had a good game. Well done to Inter, and good luck to them on Tuesday [in the Champions League]."
