January 13 News In the just-concluded Coppa Italia 1/8 finals, Rome home 1
-0 victory over Genoa. After the game, Roma coach Mourinho accepted a slow-motion interview with the broadcaster and attended the press conference.
Roma’s resilience was evident, although the team struggled a bit before Dybala came on…
Roma have always given their best, that’s why I like these lads, I grew up with one thing that I know is: just give your best and you have a clear conscience, sometimes you play well, sometimes you play very well, sometimes you play well.
It was not a good time, but my players have always given their all for the team and I like that attitude.
The only thing I regret today is that Zaniolo was booed by the fans, that happens when someone takes a salary from Roma and then criticizes a player in front of the microphone, because people follow those who played at Roma
People who have left history, I have a short history at the club but maybe people should also listen to me and that is please don’t boo the players who give everything for the team.
(This content is aimed at Roma star Candela, who said in an interview that he expects Zaniolo to get more goals and assists.)
How is Pellegrini’s physical condition?
He was substituted today due to injury…
He has some problems with his flexors, we will evaluate them tomorrow.
Gilardino led the team to play a difficult game. After Pellegrini went off, I tried my best not to be dragged into extra time. I could have replaced a young player like Volpato
Yes, but I decided to bring in Dybala, although we played well overall, Dybala is a whole other level.
What do you think of the clash between Roma and Napoli fans on the A1?
I’m a coach, it’s my job to coach, not to comment on this, although according to some people: I’m not coaching well.
Thiago – Pinto previously said that Roma has all the conditions to enter the Champions League?
I don’t think a coach should comment on a director’s remarks.
The following is the content of the press conference:
When Dybala played, everyone seemed to be more motivated…
The team has been giving it their all, but when you play 40-50 games a season, sometimes it’s not that committed, Dybala is the kind of player who can make the team and the coach better, some
Coaches have 4-5 of these players, some coaches have 11, some have 20, and we don’t have 7-8 Dybala, with him it’s a completely different music.
What mentality will Roma face in 2023?
Are you happy with your situation?
Whether I am satisfied or not, I will give my best. I think this is the most important thing, because what the Roma fans, director and boss care about is not whether I am happy, but whether I have done my best.
I haven’t spoken publicly for the past two months because I was suspended and today I want to talk to you: I would like to thank the president of the Portuguese Football Federation, who made me happy with his invitation, saying that I am their only option and will
It made me happy to bring me home at all costs, but I didn’t go, I chose to stay and will give everything for the team.
What do you think of Zaniolo being booed?
I’m sorry to hear the boos at the substitution, the olympiad was always full and I’ve always been proud, empathy is built over a long period of time, we always give our best as a team so I’m sorry
Someone booed Zaniolo, who has always been a model of giving his all.
My history in Rome is not long enough, but I also hope that people can listen to my voice. I think fans can boo the team, boo the coach, boo the game results, but not individual players. I am sorry for Zaniolo.
Can Roma win the Coppa Italia?
First of all, I want to win the Coppa Italia. I won once with Inter Milan against Roma, and now I also want to win with Roma.
I think the Coppa Italia is the worst cup in Europe. The competition system cannot protect small teams. For example, after Turin eliminated Milan, they will play away games in the next round. I don’t understand why the Coppa Italia has such a structure.
To win the championship requires high-level players, so even if it is a cup match, it is risky to have 3-4 players who usually don’t play much young players on the field together. I could have ranked the midfield combination of Bovey Tashirovic today.
, but I didn’t do it because we want to win the Coppa Italia and we will continue to work hard.
