Roma manager Jose Mourinho attended a late pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League return leg with RB Salzburg.

The Portuguese technician discussed the team’s motivation to overcome the defeat in the first leg and advance to the next round of the competition.

“Dybala and Abraham are not 100% yet,” Mourinho told reporters. “But they’re available to help. Perhaps off the bench, including Lorenzo Pellegrini.”

“Tomorrow we’ll try to play as well as we can. Salzburg will be attacking despite having a 1-0 advantage over us.”

“My future? Today we have to think about tomorrow, either we are in or we are out, it is not a league game. The future in this case is tomorrow, I don’t want to talk about my situation.”

“Gini [Wijnaldum] I see him every day, you have seen in those 10 minutes with Verona that he is improving in intensity. He can be a solution for us tomorrow.”

“I am sure that regardless of who plays tomorrow, the boys will play with the hunger to win,” he added.
