Roma manager José Mourinho previewed this summer’s upcoming Euro 2020 competition in today’s edition of The Sun.
The 58 year-old will be an analyst for various outlets in the UK during the competition, though, he admitted he’ll be keeping a close eye on the Giallorossi’s Lorenzo Pellegrini, Bryan Cristante, and Leonardo Spinazzola.
Discussing the Azzurri’s prospects in the tournament, ‘The Special One’ wrote, “I’ll be looking for my Roma players Spinazzola, Cristante and Pellegrini — of course I’m going to be focusing on them.”
“Italy is a team with a good mixture of good experienced players, guys that know how to win. They’re going to be strong. Roberto Mancini is a very experienced manager – he spent 20 years coaching in the best leagues in the best countries.”
“So he’s more than ready and he’s showing already in the qualification phase how good he is. The team have improved a lot under him.”
“Italy have talented players, but they have a very good tactical knowledge. They’re able to play in different ways.”
“Roberto is giving them a little bit more attacking quality but they don’t lose their nature and they know how to compete.”
“I think this is the best quality of them as a team. It’s difficult to find weaknesses. I think they will be always in the final four,” he predicted.
