Mourinho and Zaniolo’s bond at Roma grows stronger

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho and Nicolo Zaniolo continue to further improve their relationship after a summer filled with rumors linking the young attacker with a departure from the Italian capital. Now, Zaniolo is looking to renew his contract with the Giallorossi, with Mourinho playing a major part in his decision.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mourinho’s recent words in his post-match interview at Empoli – where the Portuguese technician praised Zaniolo for his perseverance and availability to the team despite recently dislocating his shoulder – highlighted their bond growing stronger since the Conference League win.

Zaniolo is deemed irreplaceable by the Special One who hopes to be able to give a start either on Thursday with Helsinki or Atalanta on Sunday.
