(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 21 – “If Zaniolo stays? The question is for him or for the director. If you ask me if I would like him to stay then I say yes”, said Josè Mourinho at a press conference on the eve of the challenge with the Cremonese.
“Today he is a much more important player for us – continues the Special One – Physically he is very well, he is more agile and fresh”.
Speaking of Lorenzo Pellegrini, however, he added: “Last year he was a player with potential, today he has become a great player. He has reached an important football maturity, he can play in any position and area of the pitch”. And to those who ask instead if it is more difficult to win a trophy after 14 years or to reconfirm oneself, he answers by comparing the Conference and the Europa League: “The competition we won is not very different from the one we will play this year and if we had the mental strength to to win the Conference, then we have to put everything in the Europa League as well. In Italy, however, it is complicated. Today we have more potential than last year, but the problem is that the others have also improved and this is not good news for us. ” He closes with a joke about the possible arrival of Belotti: “Abraham’s change in Salerno was not a sign to say that I didn’t have a striker, but if he really wants to come to Rome, I like that he is enthusiastic about him.” (HANDLE).
