Roma defender Roger Ibanez was asked about Roma’s ambitions for the season given Mourinho’s leadership in his second year in the Italian capital.
Ibanez, fresh off his Brazil debut, did not hesitate to name the Scudetto as a concrete objective for the Giallorossi.
“We will fight for the Scudetto,” he told journalist Andersinho Marques. ”We will do anything it takes to get to the top of the league table.”
When asked about Mourinho, Ibanez replied, ”He can be good and mean at the same time, and that’s a good thing.”
“He’s always been very good to me and I thank him for his help.”
