Sheriff Tiraspol host Roma on the opening day of the UEFA Europa League. José Mourinho appeared at the press conference. The Portuguese coach described the match as a difficult one, against an opponent who has already caused problems for some of Europe’s biggest names, such as Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and Inter Milan.
“Two years ago, he won in Madrid, in the cathedral of soccer, and created difficulties for a great Inter. They have a lot of foreign players, high-level professionals who want to grow and take advantage of these European matches to show themselves. They are coached by an Italian who has a very defensive formation, so it will be difficult, but we need a positive result to avoid second place”, said the Special One.
