Roma boss Jose Mourinho went in depth about the team’s preparations ahead of tomorrow night’s return leg with Feyenoord.

Following his pre-match press conference, Mourinho featured in an interview with Sky Sport where he discussed his own dedication to the crucial Europa League match.

“I haven’t left Trigoria for the past two days. I’ve been locked inside and haven’t left, so I am completely oblivious to whatever is being said outside of our training facilities,” said the Special One.

“I’m calm here but it’s a strange sense of calm, it almost feels artificial,” he continued. “Tomorrow we have everything to play of so it’s a good game despite the negative result from the previous match.”

“I’m 200% sure that the fans will want to play with us tomorrow. I want to have 67,000 players on the pitch with us. I don’t need spectators. Spectators are one thing, spectator-players are another thing. I expect people who want to play the game with us. Either we win and go to the semifinals or we go home sad, but tired after having given everything. That’s the goal.”
