Roma midfielder Edoardo Bove discussed his rapport with Jose Mourinho.

Brought up from the Primavera, Bove had an impressive final stretch of the season last year with the first team and is now a regular part of Jose Mourinho’s rotations.

Ahead of tonight’s showdown with Milan, Bove spoke to Serie A TV.

“The qualities that the coach praised are qualities me for are qualities that I recognize in myself and therefore I thank him for his support,” Bove said when asked about the Special One’s impact on his young career.

“Mourinho and I share a lot empathy and it is a relationship that I believe has matured over the years and I hope it continues this way.”

“Milan? I expect a match of great intensity. I was lucky enough to play against Milan last year and it’s always a difficult game. They have changed many players over the summer and therefore it will certainly be a match in which we must try to give our best to win.”
