Andy Mattioli

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.”
