Former Inter and Roma youth manager, Andrea Stramaccioni, appeared on Sky Sport today and was asked about the arrival of José Mourinho in the Italian capital.
Stramaccioni, who spent five seasons with Roma’s youth sector, applauded his former club’s decision to appoint to “The Special One.”, though, he reiterated that there’s still work to be done.
“Mourinho has brought huge enthusiasm, an incredible spark,” said the Italian.
“Along with Capello, this is the most important manager that has arrived in Roma’s history. I think he’s exactly what the environment needed, especially from a motivational level. Rome thrives on enthusiasm.”
He continued, “Now, I don’t want to be killjoy, but there’s very little that he can do without the right players. Perhaps this is the biggest challenge: creating and building team given the difficult financial situation that our sport is in.”
“Nonetheless, there’s a ton of excitement, but we have to wait and see what follows and the players that they’re able to attract.”
