Sergio Oliveira considered central to Roma’s project

Sergio Oliveira’s arrival in the Italian capital catapulted him directly in the starting eleven.

Ever since he signed on with the Giallorossi, the Portuguese midfielder has appeared in seven matches collecting 2 goals.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the 29-year-old has already established himself as one of the leaders of the team and Mourinho is very happy with him.

The club have placed him at the center of the project as Oliveira represents what the Special One seeks in his players: hard-work, determination and leadership.

With Mourinho’s blessing, Roma have already an agreement in place with Porto to trigger the option to buy for €13 million, making the move permanent in June.

During the summer window, the plan is to shift Oliveira’s position to that of a mezz’ala by bringing in a much-needed regista.
