Roma hosts Bayer Leverkusen tonight in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals. Before the match, Xabi Alonso, the German club coach, spoke about his anxiety before the match. Although he thinks it is special for him to face his former coach at Real Madrid.

“Of course, it’s special for me to play against Jose Mourinho. I know I had a lot of fun with him. I learned a lot. José Mourinho knows how to convince a team and, moreover, he has always been a leader. I admit that I am anxious, but when the game starts, I just have total concentration on what is happening on the field. That is where I put all my energy to work, “said Xabi Alonso.
