El Shaarawy scored his first goal of the season in the 90th minute of a tough match against Monza who were reduced to 10 men following Danilo D’Ambrosio’s harsh sending off four minutes before half-time.
The Roma boss, Jose Mourinho was sent off after making a crying motion at the Monza staff.in stoppage time after El Shaarawy struck, as tensions engulfed between the two dugouts.
While reacting after the game Mourinho told Sky Sport: “When I saw Azmoun’s shot, more than Lukaku’s, hit the post I thought, bah, if that doesn’t go in… but Stephen has a feeling for goals and scoring late so he won the match for us,”
“The only ones complaining about the referee were them. I’m not criticising them for it but for the fact that after a match like that they had some nasty words for us,” added Mourinho.
“All I will say is, they are a good team with a good manager that didn’t deserve to lose, I can’t be more honest than that.”
The Monza put up a brave fight despite being a man down for half the match, El Shaarawy’s winner was the first goal they have conceded from open play since the start of September.
