Roma fullback Bryan Reynolds recently completed his second consecutive loan move in Belgium. This time around the 20-year-old from Texas joined Westerlo until the end of the 22/23 campaign.
In the meantime, Reynolds touched upon his ups and downs during his time at Roma, his difficulty in adapting to Serie A based on his experience in the MLS, and a potential return to the Italian capital.
“If I do well this year I will be able to return to Roma or perhaps go elsewhere,” he told Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport.
“In MLS I was a winger, and I was very good especially when I could go forward,” he continued.
“It takes time – I’ve been a full-back for only two years and it takes time to get used to it. But if I want to be a high-quality player, I have to be a good defender.”
“Mourinho often gave me advice in training on how to improve when I made mistakes, but also complimented me when I was doing well.”
“I played very little but I appreciated having the chance to play under his guidance,” added the ex-Dallas man.
“Of course, being discarded in January was a tough pill to swallow but now I’m in Belgium and I don’t want to think about it anymore.”
“I’d like to return to Roma, but the reality is different. I’m not ready yet.”
