Roma boss, Jose Mourinho has said he would like to see a female player, Carina Wenninger in his team.

Roma is going through some injury crisis at the moment and managed to draw 1-1 at home to AC Milan on Saturday.

Tammy Abraham had scored what should be the winning goal for Roma in the 93rd minute but the goal was cancelled by a 97th-minute leveller.

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
