Similarly to his teammate Tammy Abraham, Nicolò Zaniolo released an interview to UEFA about his time working with José Mourinho ahead of a crucial Conference League semifinal vs Leicester City.
“Mourinho is one of the best coaches in the world! He taught us the art of never giving up, of always staying sharp, of staying together to bring home the results.”
“I hope to win something with him. From the first day we met in Trigoria, we immediately worked day after day and piece after piece to try to do something important this year.”
“With the coach who knows how to win, I think we have more chances.”
“Leicester are a strong team. They run a lot, they are a physical team, the classic English team.”
He concluded, “But we are strong, we are Roma, we have shown this year that we can play with everyone: we are not afraid, let’s go play the game with our means.”
