Rui Patricio not at risk of being dropped by Mourinho

Andy Mattioli

Despite an underwhelming start to the season, Rui Patricio is set to remain Roma’s first-choice goal-keeper.

The Portuguese veteran was recently at the center of criticism from fans and media alike following his two performances in Roma’s first games of the season.

Patricio’s slow reactions on Roma’s conceded goals with Salernitana and Hellas Verona prompted the fans to demand a new shot-stopper before the transfer deadline.

However, Corriere dello Sport reports that Patricio’s position within the team is not in jeopardy.

The player is not at risk of being dropped by Jose Mourinho: the Special One is on very good terms with the ex-Wolves man and plans to continue relying on him for this season.

Roma’s second-choice keeper, Mile Svilar, could make his debut in the Europa League this year.
