Roger Ibanez proved to be one of the leading protagonists in tonight’s 3-0 win over Monza as the Brazilian centre-back was also praised by Mourinho in the manager post-game interview. Ibanez thanked the Special One after the final whistle.
“I thank the coach so much for his words and advice, he’s helped me a lot,” he told DAZN. “I can learn a lot from him. He is a great coach, he gives us a lot of confidence.”
“I was very happy with my goal tonight. We’re a team, a family, that’s very important going forward,” added the centre-back.
“Last year I made some mistakes that I promised to myself to never repeat them again. I worked on it with Mourinho, who works a lot on the mental aspects of the game. I feel great now, I’m in my best moment.”
