Roma fullback Leonardo Spinazzola spoke about the club’s decision to dismiss Jose Mourinho and appoint Daniele De Rossi.

The Italian defender was interviewed by DAZN minutes prior to kick-off to Roma-Hellas Verona.

“De Rossi? I was lucky enough to play with him in the national team. Then I was lucky enough to have him at the EUROs as a mentor and that evening we won the final is unforgettable to this day,” said Spinazzola of the new Roma head coach.

“De Rossi was already a coach on the pitch, he is a great person, a great man and he transmits a lot to you,” he added.

“Mourinho? I don’t know what happened. The club made the decision. We always gave everything with him on the sidelines. Today is a fresh start.”
