Tammy Abraham made a sensational Roma debut with two assists in a 3-1 win over 10-man Fiorentina, but it was the most dramatic moment in an eventful night in the Italian top flight, with six red cards in four matches and three big-name managers returning to the touchline.
The one with the biggest reputation — Mourinho — was made happy by two assists from new signing Tammy Abraham who on his Roma debut laid on both goals in a fine win at the Stadio Olimpico.
With Fiorentina down to 10 men after Bartlomiej Dragowski’s bad foul on the England international forward, in the 26th minute Abraham slipped through Henrikh Mkhitaryan whose neat finish was given as a goal after a long VAR check.
Nicolo Zaniolo’s second yellow card gave a brave Fiorentina side hope and Nikola Milenkovic levelled the scores on the hour mark.
However great work again from Abraham led to Roma retaking the lead through Jordan Veretout four minutes later, the 23-year-old just about staying onside before rolling a perfect low cross which allowed the French midfielder to slot home.
Veretout made sure Mourinho got three points from his first match in Serie A since winning the league with Inter Milan in 2010 when he rolled home the third in the 79th minute after collecting a brilliant Eldor Shomurodov pass.
