Cesare Prandelli: “Mourinho is Roma’s main strength.”

Andy Mattioli

Former Fiorentina and Italy manager Cesare Prandelli – who was close to signing with Roma in the mid-2000s – discussed tonight’s match with Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“This game matters more to Juventus,” said the Italian technician. “Allegri’s team can no longer make mistakes to return from their points deduction and if they don’t beat Roma they will no longer be able to hope in the miracle of reaching the Champions League.”

“The strength of the Giallorossi is Mourinho. José took all the responsibility on his shoulders to camouflage the technical limits of the team, which is not at the level of the teams they’re competing with.”
