Bryan Cristante proves indestructible

Andy Mattioli

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante reaffirmed his place as Mourinho’s only indestructible player, having featured in every game of the season so far.

A grand total of 1080 minutes in 12 games without a single substitution; Cristante’s statistics make him the most reliable player in the Special One’s squad, a player without whom Mourinho would – as the Portuguese technician admitted on Thursday night – become desperate.

Despite an initial injury scare in the final minutes of Roma’s recent win over Slavia Praha in the Europa League, Corriere della Sera reports that Cristante has recovered and is once again expected to start in this weekend’s Serie A fixture with Inter Milan at San Siro.
