Ex-assistant coach Nuno Campos: “Roma have only 14 quality players.”

Former assistant coach and Paulo Fonseca’s trusted collaborator Nuno Campos – most recently the manager of Santa Clara in Portugal’s top flight, but sacked after an unsuccessful take-over between October and December – was interviewed by Eleven Sports Portugal.

The ex-assistant coach shared his thoughts about Roma’s decision to sign Sergio Oliveira and the club’s ambitions going forward.

“Oliveira will be of great help to Roma, he deserved this opportunity. We worked together at Paços de Ferreira, he is a champion, a player with a strong personality. He will be of great help, he has already scored a decisive penalty.”

“In Rome, the pressure on the team and the coach is on par with some of the biggest clubs in the world. There is enormous pressure to win the Scudetto but Roma have only won three in their entire history.”

“Mourinho is one of the best coaches in the world but if one doesn’t give him time and provide him with investments, he turn out to be a flop. No coach can work miracles. Some can do more, some less, but none can work miracles.”

“You can also take Mourinho, but you can’t hope to win anything if you only have the same 12-13 players playing. I think the fans understood, Roma only have 14 quality players, those are not enough to win.”
