Former Roma and Juventus attacker Mirko Vučinić was asked to preview tonight’s Serie A engagement between the capital club and the Bianconeri. The 38-year-old also discussed Dybala’s decision to come to Roma and Jose Mourinho’s impact on the players and club’s mentality.

“Tonight’s game is undecipherable to me,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Juventus have great players, but Roma got better this summer and can challenge anyone.”

“Abraham has shown how good of a player he is, and Dybala can be the difference-maker.”

When asked about Dybala’s switch to the capital as a free agent, “I envy him, I would have liked to work with José.”

“I remember playing against his Inter team and it felt like having a tank in front of you: that group was strong psychologically, everyone gave 100% for each other.”

“Only he could bring such enthusiasm back to Rome. He won a trophy, which had been missing in Rome for many years. And you never win by chance.”
