Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto analysed the capital club’s appointment of Jose Mourinho, it’s impact on the Giallorossi’s development and Mourinho’s work in the Italian capital so far.
“It was a big achievement for the club to convince Mourinho to accept Roma’s offer,” Pinto said in a recent interview with The Mirror.
“Again, we worked hard – the ownership and myself – trying to persuade him that this was the right project for him. Besides the results, the Conference League we won, the progress made by the players, it is a great pride for us to see that he is a Romanista today.”
“He fully embraced the values of the club and the city and he is the best ambassador of AS Roma in the world today. When a coach reaches that level of empathy with the city and the fans, it means you did a good job.”
