Feyenoord manager Arne Slot said he’s looking forward to facing Roma one more time in February as part of the Europa League knockout round.

The Dutch technician reflected on yesterday’s draw in an interview with Rijnmond, “I just think it’s fantastic to be able to play against them again. I’m not that surprised. If you get past the group stage of a European competition three years in a row, there’s a good chance you’ll be facing successful managers.”

“José Mourinho is perhaps the most successful manager of recent years. Every game between the two of us was close and fantastic, but I didn’t get the result I wanted.”

“Every challenge teaches you something, Roma play with a formation that we don’t often see in Holland. However, I will try to make the most of the things I learned in the last two encounters.”
