Roma Primavera player Filippo Missori made his first Serie A start in Sunday evening’s draw with Bologna.
The young fullback replaced Leonardo Spinazzola in Mourinho’s starting formation against the Felsinei.
In his post-match interview with Roma TV, Missori discussed the opportunity to start.
“Being Roman and having grown up here it was really an emotion that cannot be described in words. I tried to remain calm despite my heart racing.”
“Mourinho told me to play like I always do. He told me to watch how the game develops in order to acquire confidence and then to just play the way I always play with the Primavera.”
“I must continue to improve under all points of view. One must always give everything for the team and themselves.”
