Roma are trying to mend the rapport between Jose Mourinho and Rick Karsdorp with the awareness that the Dutch fullback is pushing to leave the Italian capital in the coming weeks.

As many reports have claimed over the past few days, Karsdorp is expected to be present at today’s training session in Trigoria where he will confront Roma’s top management and ask to be excluded from the team’s trip to Portugal.

In the meantime, Jose Mourinho refused to address the tense situation upon touching down in Italy.

The Portuguese technician was spotted by reporters at the airport, but refused to give concrete answers.

Corriere dello Sport recorded Mourinho replying to questions about Karsdorp, “You know me, I don’t talk about these things.”
