Roma legend Aldair: “Mourinho protects the team and the players appreciate it.”

Roma legend and former captain Aldair discussed Mourinho’s first season in the capital as well as the Giallorossi’s chances heading into the Conference League final with Feyenoord.

“Mourinho has done a good job. I often laugh when they ask him football questions, and he often talks about something else instead,” he told Il Messaggero.

“But it’s a way to protect the team and the players eventually appreciate it. For a final evaluation however, we have to wait. Let’s hope he can win the cup.”

“Mourinho’s been good even though he found a team that was perhaps lacking too much.”

“Roma’s fanbase is exceptional, it has few equals in the world,” he added.

On his favorite Roma defender presently he replied “If I have to express a preference, I like Mancini because he is not afraid to start the action, he always comes out with the ball at his feet, he is quite careful in man-marking.”
