Former Roma attacker Marco Delvecchio spoke with anticipation about this Sunday’s Serie A fixture with Inter Milan at San Siro.

In an interview with AGI, Delvecchio – who contributed to Roma’s Scudetto winning squad in 2001 – said, “I expect a very good match, played directly also because Roma need to win to move up the table and Inter want to gain an advantage over Milan, Juve and all their pursuers.”

“Lukaku? Stepping on the pitch with opposing fans booing you isn’t always a negative aspect, it shows and means that you were important to them and still are. Be careful because Lukaku is a player with character and he will get even more excited when he hears whistles and protests. If the fans think they are hurting him, they could have the opposite effect.”

“Mourinho? When it comes to communication he is number 1. As it often happens, with his statements he is trying to draw attention to himself in order to leave the players more carefree, and with less pressure.”
