Former Inter executive Marco Branca has been one of the more vocal supporters of Mourinho’s tenure in the Italian capital. The two collaborated during the treble-winning years at Inter. Branca is now convinced that the Special One can lead Roma to Scudetto glory as stated in an interview with Il Secolo XIX.
“José was the winning coach of Inter, Dejan [Stankovic] one of our main pillars for many years, I am happy to see them face to face,” Branca said in a preview of tomorrow night’s match-up with Sampdoria at the Ferraris in Genova.
“And I am pleased that Stankovic continues his career as a coach and chose to return to Serie A with Sampdoria.”
“In three years at Red Star in Belgrade he proved to be a good coach, he won, he qualified for the Europa League twice and came close to the Champions League.”
“Mourinho, on the other hand…” Branca added. “Sooner or later he will win the Scudetto at Roma.”
