Nicola Zalewski discusses Mourinho’s impact ahead of World Cup debut

Andy Mattioli

Roma wide man Nicola Zalewski is one of the few Roma players to be away on international duty for the World Cup in Qatar.

The 20-year-old attended his first presser as a Polish international ahead of his debut in the prestigious tournament.

“I feel very well,” he told reporters. “There’s some pressure but that’s normal. I am ready for the first game.”

“When it comes to positioning on the pitch, if we play in a 4-2-3-1 then I can slot in as a fullback or play further up front.”

“Mourinho? He’s given me a lot in terms of confidence and advice. The last few months have been complicated, but I know I have to work hard and it will eventually pass.”
