THE WORDS OF MOURINHO
Have you seen a growing team in the last two games?
“I hope so. I am 7 in a row in Serie A without defeat and in the last 2 wins the team has been good: attitude, concentration from the first to the last minute. And when you play knockout matches every detail is important. This gives me hope, the team is fine, only Spinazzola is not available. We have the whole group. It is a surprise for me because for the first time since I am in the Netherlands the field is not football. I have been coming here for more than 20 years and The fields have always been beautiful. I don’t understand how to play, but we will try to achieve the result and qualify “.
“I bet on those who work well, and now everyone is in good shape. Against Atalanta it was one of the few games in which we made 5 changes. Now we have a united squad and a suitable bench. We have two goals and every game. it’s decisive for us. I’m with my players, but it won’t be turnover. We’ll play with a strong team and bench. “
“I’ll be brief, I started with Van Gaal, I just have to express my gratitude. Dutch offensive football, maybe it’s changing given the bad fields there are.”
THE WORDS OF KARSDORP
Do you follow Dutch football? How does the Vitesse seem to you?
“Difficult to follow him, I keep an eye on him. Vitesse who proved his worth against Tottenham and Rennais.”
What is it like to work with Mourinho? How is life in Rome going?
“Nice, I’m playing a lot. He always asks us the best in Trigoria. The coach gives you a lot of energy, the last few games are an example. Life in Rome is going well, I’ve just become a father again.”
The Conference League?
“We have to try to win, given the elimination in the Italian Cup. We are working to reach fourth place and go as far as possible in this tournament.”
The conditions of the camp?
“I took a quick look, but even thanks to a video I saw they don’t look great.”
Will you be the owner tomorrow? Does Rome suffer from drops in concentration?
“I don’t know if I’m a starter. In my opinion it’s human to have ups and downs, it happened to me too: we’re not used to playing with this continuity. We still have to work to achieve our goals.”
Why is Mourinho the Special One?
“For what he does on and off the pitch. The coach is demanding.”
