General Manager Tiago Pinto was interviewed by Sky Sport and asked to share his thoughts on Mourinho’s tenure and the club objectives for January.
“Mourinho has built this image over time, we are aligned with Mourinho’s strategy. He is aligned with us, we cannot create an instant team to win immediately like others do and it is not a criticism, but a truth.”
“Some sporting directors operate in one direction, many times you may have doubts about my word, but Mourinho has launched footballers like Felix Afena-Gyan.”
“We want to be ambitious, we want a sustainable project and we want to win with this strategy and we have no doubts about this.”
“I think you’re mistaken when you question Abraham, because Abraham is young and strong, we want to work in all areas and improve every day and every transfer window.”
“Mourinho is important to us, we appointed him because his track record was perfect for developing this project and improving all Roma players. I’m sure the choice was right and he will be one of the most important coaches in the history of Roma.”
