The coach was once more banished to the stands after making a telephone gesture to the referee

Roma boss Jose Mourinho limited himself to sending a cryptic message and photo montage after seeing red during his sides thrilling 2-2 draw against Verona on Saturday.

Mourinhos men were forced to fight back from 2-0 down at the Stadio Olimpico, but earned a share of the points through goals from teenage substitute pair Cristian Volpato and Edoardo Bove.

The coach himself was not around for full time, though, having been sent to the stands by referee Luca Pairetto.

The Special One incurred Pairettos wrath after gesturing at the match official in the dying minutes.

Pairetto evidently took exception to the telephone gesture Mourinho aimed his way and sent him packing with the game poised at 2-2.

Mourinho duly left the sidelines, but not before making a point of going over to hug his opposite number, Verona coach Igor Tudor.

“Picture 1 ball possession-picture 2 direct football-picture,” Mourinho wrote on Instagram after the game following his expulsion, his only public comments of the evening.

“3 I love this people and for them I fight-picture 4 I dont talk is better to go home and have a nice dinner.”Have a good Sunday.”

Saturdays draw leaves Roma in seventh place in Serie A, six points behind Juventus in the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot and three shy of current Europa League qualifiers Atalanta.

Mourinhos tenure has proved predictably volatile to date, with the coach also seeing red in a pre-season friendly with Betis and during a Serie A clash against Napoli in his six months at the helm in the Italian capital.

His outbursts from the touchline have also become a regular fixture at Roma games, such as his furious reaction to the decision to rule out Felix Afena-Gyans strike against Spezia.
