Legendary Roma fullback Vincent Candela spoke in favor of both Jose Mourinho and Dan and Ryan Friedkin.

In a recent interview with Corriere della Sera, Candela – who helped the Giallorossi win the historical Scudetto in 2001 – backed Jose Mourinho for the future.

“I have been waiting for Mou’s renewal since the beginning of the season,’ Candela told the newspaper. “I hope the Friedkins surprise us soon and announce the renewal of Mourinho’s contract. Otherwise, the climate until the end of the season will be tense.”

“It would be a great signal for the fans, for the players and for the future of the club. It would be difficult to get to the end of the season with a coach whose contract is expiring. He likes being here, I think and hope that Dan Friedkin agrees to it.”

“Winning is important and Mourinho has demonstrated this throughout his career. However, I think that by playing well it is easier to win. There are some situations in which you can win even by playing ugly games, but when you’re at full strength it’s nice to win by playing well.”

“The left-back position? Spinazzola had some physical problems, I really like Zalewski who did well on the left. He should have continuity in the role because if he plays once in front, once at the back and once on the right it becomes difficult for a young boy.”
