General Manager Tiago Pinto was asked to speak ahead of tonight’s long-awaited Derby della Capitale and discuss Mourinho as well as Pedro’s grudge against the Giallorossi following his departure earlier in the summer of 2021.
“[Mourinho] is a genuine and very natural person,” said Pinto to DAZN when asked about the Special One. “The relationship that he shares with the fans is very genuine.”
“We’re very pleased that from day one the fans have always been close to the team. This feeling is beautiful, it motivates us a lot, but it also gives us the responsibility to give them what they want – the victories.”
On Pedro’s grudge, he answered, “We can talk about it at the right time, but today is the derby and I don’t think it’s the right time to talk about what happened last summer.”
He concluded, “For the fans, the derby is a special match, but I honestly say that we have to talk match by match. Today is an important match, not only for the fans but also for the league standings.”
