Bryan Cristante becomes one of Mourinho’s favorite players

Andy Mattioli

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante is steadily becoming one of the most reliable players in Jose Mourinho’s managerial career.

Cristante’s versatility and adaptability to any situation the team is involved in – argues La Gazzetta dello Sport – has put him on a special pedestal in the Special One’s eyes.

Most recently, Cristante has filled in for Diego Llorente in Roma’s backline, playing as a centreback versus Frosinone.

In addition to this, Cristante is also one of the more consistent performers for Roma this season with 2 goals and 2 assists in 7 games in Serie A.

For Mourinho, Cristante remains untouchable – an irreplaceable point of reference for the rest of the team and a personal favorite with whom he is on very good terms.
