Fabio Capello discusses Roma’s transfer window & Mourinho’s ambitions

Andy Mattioli

Former Roma boss Fabio Capello discussed at length the club’s transfer window so far and the comparisons between Mourinho’s second season with the Giallorossi and his in 2001.

“Roma now can’t allow themselves to hide anymore. Inter are head and shoulders above everyone else, but the Giallorossi are in the same position as Juventus and Milan,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I really like this team. They got several free agents not for the sake of having them, but because they respond to a certain logic, to a tactical project that Mourinho has in mind.”

“In short, the musicians are there, the conductor is there, you just have to see what music they will play.”

“José is a winner, and he also demonstrated it at Roma. He now has a team that lives up to his expectations, but he is perfect in managing the group and therefore he will have no problems entering his second season.”

“The risk in Rome, in fact, is always the same: too much excitement.”

“I followed Wijnaldum at Liverpool and he’s a great player. One of those midfielders who is good at playing through balls right away that Mourinho likes a lot.”

“Roma are now a great team. If you also think there’s a healthy Spinazzola on the wing. Someone like him knows how to make a difference.”
