Nemanja Matic is on a mission to complete his second season at Roma in a winning fashion after coming close to the Europa League trophy.

The Serbian midfielder is reportedly already at work to prepare for Roma’s preseason training camp.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Matic’s role as a leader this coming season will grow even more with Mourinho wanting to make him his right-hand man on and off the pitch.

The veteran’s influence on the younger players has been immense: the likes of Edoardo Bove and Benjamin Tahirovic emerged from under his wing.
