Riccardo Calafiori, a Bologna player who trained at Roma, has known two great coaches in his young career. Firstly, José Mourinho at the Giallorossi and Thiago Motta at his current club. He drew a comparison between the two men. He revealed that the Portuguese brought him mental progression, while the Italian brought him tranquillity.
“I don’t know, they’re different. They give you different things, but very important things. Motta gave me the spirit of tranquillity. In terms of charisma. He’s very strong. That made me progress mentally. He was also fundamental. Last year, he often wrote to me after the games. Even in Basel. That’s objective,” Riccardo Calafiori told Corriere Dello Sport.
