José Mourinho is currently serving a suspension with his deputy. To this end, former Roma legend Bruno Conti will be at the club’s technical helm on Sunday against Salernitana on the first day of Serie A. He expresses his delight at the honor bestowed on him.
“First of all, I would like to thank him publicly for the opportunity he has given me. I will do my best to help him. I would also like to thank the coaching staff for the warm welcome they have given me. I’d like to personally thank the Friedkin family who run this club: when Roma calls, it’s impossible not to answer. When I hear our fans supporting me, I already know it’s going to be wonderful,” said Bruno Conti. Now it’s José Mourinho’s turn to assess the legend. He thinks he’ll do, and wishes him good luck for the match. “Having Bruno in my place is an honor for me. When I first spoke to him, I could feel his enthusiasm straight away. I want to thank him for the emotions he has given me back, and I’m sure that on Sunday, with our fans, he will give us an extra boost,” said José Mourinho.
