Mourinho discusses decision to start Dybala in Juventus match

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho was asked about his decision to start Paulo Dybala as the sole attacker up front in tonight’s match at the Olimpico with the Argentine’s former team.

Minutes away from kick-off to Roma-Juventus, Mourinho said in an interview with DAZN, “I haven’t spoken to Dybala about it. I think in terms of pressure of facing his former side it was much tougher on him to play in Turin.”

“I don’t think it’s a problem for him to play with his former club. There are players who know how to better manage emotions during these matches.”

“Pellegrini? He’s had some issues recently but he’s always been there for us. I don’t know if he can play 90 minutes tonight.”
