Mourinho to ramp up Wijnaldum’s minutes

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho is expected to increasingly rely on one of Roma’s big summer signings in the form of Gini Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman’s recent return to the pitch was cause for celebration as he’d missed the last 5 months with a fractured leg.

Having featured for ten minutes in Roma’s recent outing at Lecce, Wijnaldum is predicted to be more involved in Roma’s rotations.

As reported by Leggo, Mourinho and his staff are planning to steadily increase the minutes played by Wijnaldum who is still far from his ideal condition. Mourinho himself admitted that the ex-Liverpool man lacks intensity at the moment, but will soon play an important role in the final stretch of Roma’s campaign.
