Andy Mattioli

Former Roma attacker Ruggiero Rizzitelli acknowledged the importance of having Mourinho on the Giallorossi’s touchline in this evening’s Europa League final.

“Mourinho doesn’t have the team that is necessary to face a European final given all the injuries that happened in the most complicated part of the season,” Rizzitelli said in an interview with Leggo. “It is a miracle that Roma is in Budapest, yet someone still has the nerve to criticise Mourinho.”

“Those who talk trash about Mou are usually frustrated individuals, former colleagues of mine in search of some publicity.”

“There’s no one better than Mourinho at managing the heat of a final,” Rizzitelli added.
