Former Roma player and UEFA director Zbigniew Boniek addressed the rumors of a return to the capital club in a managerial position.

Recent reports from Italy claimed Boniek could make a surprise return to Roma as an advisor to Mourinho.

In a recent interview with Radio Romanista, Boniek denied having held talks with the Giallorossi.

“I have never been contacted by the club. It bothers me that my name is being played with, because it almost seems like I’ve been “fucked” but that’s absolutely not the case.”

“Having said that, I would love to return. I wouldn’t be a burden, on the contrary, I could lend a hand. With 22-24 players it is always better to have more eyes, there is a need for teamwork, for people to compare: the more you know, the more you see, and the more you can make the right choices.”

“After the Europa League final in Budapest Mou was resentful, and felt disappointed by Taylor’s decisions and he’s right too. After 20 minutes Roma had 4 yellow cards and this was the biggest problem. I think that every now and then this nervousness that the players show and some of the coaching staff doesn’t help the team.”
