Roma striker Andrea Belotti addressed the media to preview tomorrow night’s Europa League affair with Real Betis. The attacker is likely to start with Mourinho hinting at a possible partnership with Tammy Abraham up front.

“Tammy and I train according to the coach’s needs, we are always focused on the next match. We just have to be ready at all times,” he said.

“With Helsinki we played a small portion of the game together, but if we play together we will know what to do because we work on it during training, it is always one more solution for the greater good of the team. These choices are up to the coach.”

“I used the international break to train more, but I also had some rest for a few days because I think it was something that could be good for myself and my body.”

“I knew it would take some time to recover my ideal condition, I have always tried to do that little bit more and now I can say that I feel good. The pitch will tell the rest, because words are just words.”

“For me it is an honor to be coached by Mourinho,” Belotti declared.

“His story speaks for itself like his titles. The thing that impresses you most is that, despite all this, every day he has a greater desire to win than the previous day and this is one of his great strengths and because of this he has coached great teams in his career.”

“Mourinho worked with the likes of Drogba and Ronaldo and for me he can only be a source of help because he can give me advice on how to improve.”
