Andy Mattioli

Ex-Roma player and current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti had high praise for Jose Mourinho’s impact on the capital club.

In an interview with RadioSerieA, Ancelotti paid his compliments to Mourinho for his ability to embrace and invigorate Roma’s fanbase in his first two years in the Italian capital.

“This special connection between him and the fans doesn’t surprise me, because Mou is outspoken, honest and a great coach, so he’s managed to build a fantastic connection with the fans and that’s certainly very positive.”

“He’s also managed to bring home important results with a team that wasn’t considered among the best,” concluded Ancelotti.
