Roma coach Jose Mourinho was left disappointed with their Coppo Italia quarterfinal defeat to Cremonese.
Roma were bundled out of the Coppa 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Mourinho later said: "Have I ever had a defeat like this in the Cup before? Not many times, but it has never happened to me before. Cups are beautiful and strange competitions and some time the theoretically strongest team doesn't put everything in and the surprise happens.
"In a season in which I won the Premier League with Chelsea I was eliminated by a team in League 1 or 2. The Coppa Italia is not as good as the others, because it gives Serie B teams fewer chances to do these nice things for them, as happened today. But it happens. If you ask me if I like it, I say no, if I expected it, I say no, but it happens.
"I went down early (at halftime) because I had four substitutions and you have to prepare well. I spoke very little about the first half, ten minutes weren't enough. A very poor first half at every level.
"We can focus on the penalty error, but I don't think it's right in this case for a player. It was the team, the one on the pitch and us who were off. In the second half I was aware that it would have been completely different, but the 2-0 changes the mental dynamic, because for Cremonese one thing is 1-0 and another is 2-0, they defended themselves very well, they always waited for the slightest possibility of a counterattack, then they understood that they could use the referee's passivity in letting things go, wasting time and all that stuff, that a team try to do it and don't criticise it.
"Our goal came too late, had it arrived 5 minutes earlier we would have had a great chance to equalise."
