Jose Mourinho was interviewed by Sky Sport ahead of the crucial return leg of the Europa League knockout round with RB Salzburg at the Stadio Olimpico tomorrow night.

“For us it’s a must-win game,” said the Special One. “We know that it would be very hard for us to play in two competitions at the same time, but we prefer it to playing one game a week.”

“Let’s not think of Cremona which is only a few days away. Everyone who’s available will play tomorrow, we will try to change an undeserved result from the first leg. In order to win, we need to play a great game.”

“Dybala and Abraham? It’s difficult for both of them and it’s not clear whether they will be able to play. I’d love to go to bed knowing who will start tomorrow night, but unfortunately that is not the case. We must get used to it. Pellegrini is also there with us, and we will have to choose wisely.”

“Both Dybala and Abraham will test themselves tomorrow ahead of the game. They will decide and I trust them because they’ve got lots of experience.”
