Roma advance to the next round of Europa League knockouts and Leonardo Spinazzola couldn’t be more thrilled. The Italian fullback recently returned to Mourinho’s starting eleven following a difficult period of injuries that sidelined him for the past few months.
“I don’t tolerate people talking about my past form. I am the player that I always was. I work hard to be in the best shape possible and every now and then I am at my best,” he told Sky Sport after the game.
“I work hard more and more. I work on the details and I’m so happy with this match, with how we played and with the qualification to the next round.”
“I always try to improve,” he added. “I will always give my best.”
