The Mourinho era at Roma began on a positive note as his charges defeated Fiorentina 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico.

Jordan Veretout bagged a brace while Henrikh Mkhitaryan got the other goal to hand Mourinho his 50th win in Serie A.

In doing so, the Portuguese tactician became the fastest manager to reach 50 wins (77 games) in the Italian top flight since the 1994/95 season.

Mourinho now also holds the record as the fastest manager to reach 50 wins in Serie A, LaLiga and the Premier League.

Despite those achievements, though, the former Manchester United manager insisted his charges did not play too well on the night.

"It was a real game, entertaining, even though we didn't play very well. We were good 11 against 11, 10 against 10 good, but not 11 against 10," Mourinho told DAZN, as per Football Italia.

"That's when we lost our reference points, oddly had more difficulty pressing. Once we lost (Nicolo) Zaniolo, we got back into the game, scored two, then three and from then on had control.

"After the match, I went to (Fiorentina manager) Vincenzo Italiano and told him that Fiorentina are a team who clearly have a great coach."
