Roma visit Hellas Verona on the second day of Serie A. Ahead of the game, Giallorossi coach José Mourinho spoke at a press conference. He spoke mainly about the absence of Renato Sanches through injury. The very mysterious Special One also spoke in veiled terms about his difficulty at the club in getting players of his choice fit enough to compete.
“Renato Sanches’s absence tomorrow doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows his history over the last two years. But if he hadn’t been injured, he wouldn’t have come to Rome, he would be a starter at PSG. Last year, we took on Dybala because many people doubted his fitness. We’ve become specialists in training players of this type, and we try to give them stability so that they can return to their former level. That’s our reality: expectations are low, people don’t need to think. It may be a bit surprising for you to see me so calm, but that’s the way it is, let’s go. The important thing is tomorrow”, declared the Portuguese in a press conference.
