Roma attacker Paulo Dybala was present at today’s pre-match press conference ahead of the Giallorossi’s first leg of the Europa League knockout round with Salzburg.
The World Cup champion shared his thoughts on tomorrow’s match and addressed recent speculations regarding his future at Roma.
“We know we face a difficult team, it won’t be easy. We will be ready for battle,” he told reporters. “Salzburg are a Champions League level team. That’s something we have to keep in mind.”
“I want to win the Europa League and I will give my best together with my teammates and Mourinho to help Roma win this trophy,” he continued.
“We know that there are teams that are stronger and more favored to win than us, they also have more pressure but you never know. There are draws that are sometimes benevolent and other times not, now Barcelona-Manchester United are facing each other and one of the two will be left out. We have to focus on ourselves and beat Salzburg first.”
“My future? With all due respect, the clause I have in the contract is strictly a matter between my attorneys and the club. I don’t know what will happen at the end of the season, I don’t even know what will happen with Mourinho, you have to ask him.”
“I want to be coached by Mourinho because he’s among the best, and now I’m only thinking of Salzburg. The season is very long and I want to win with Roma and I want Roma to play in the Champions League next year.”
