Roma boss Jose Mourinho appeared on DAZN just moments before his side kicks off their round 23 league fixture against Verona.

The Giallorossi host the Venetian side at the Olimpico this evening with a chance to go third in the table and level on points with Milan.

“Verona is an opponent that has changed a lot. They’ve brought in some players that changed the team and brought a different quality which is evident in the results,” said the Special One.

“As for Dybala and Pellegrini, one is injured and the other is nearly injured. The changes to the lineup today were forced.”

“I’m not expecting anything from anyone in the team from an individual perspective. As always, I expect the team to show desire and respect for the shirt and club and do everything they can to win.”

Finally, “I always expect this from the lads.”
