Jose Mourinho previews Real Sociedad return leg

Jose Mourinho addressed the media ahead of tomorrow night’s return leg in San Sebastian where the Giallorossi will battle with Real Sociedad for the last time in order to qualify to the Europa League quarter finals.

“Alguacil? He’s a good coach, from a technical point of view. Also good at communicating with his players,” Mourinho told the media of his opponent.

“The advantage is for them to play the second game at home, he knows what to do in this case. He knows the strategy to use, but we are confident about tomorrow.”

“The next game is always the most important, tomorrow’s game is the most important of the season. Afterwards it will become the one on Sunday.”

“The ones who will play tomorrow are the ones that can give me more guarantees to qualify for the next round,” he added.

“We are a team of serious people who do their job to the fullest but sometimes lack results to show for all the hard work. We struggle a bit when we play so many games, and that’s normal. There are teams that have 24/25 players all on the same level and it’s not a problem for them. There are teams that can play every 2 days, it’s different for us.”

“If an injury occurs, a disqualification or fatigue sets in it becomes complicated. I’m always with my players and they are always with me, tomorrow is the most important match of the season in my opinion.”
