Conference League, in the Trabzonspor-Roma field

#Conference #League #TrabzonsporRoma #field

Roma and José Mourinho are ready to get serious. The Giallorossi season begins and the first engagement is already from inside or outside with the first leg of the Conference League against Trabzonspor of former Bruno Peres and Gervinho. “To see the teams it looks more like an elimination Champions League” he immediately wanted to remark the Special One to keep the attention threshold high and avoid starting on the wrong foot by underestimating the opponent. “It will be impossible to win them all, but our attitude must always be to try” continued the coach who replies to those who ask him about his first official bench with Roma: “I think it’s 996 / a in his career, I’m calm”. The facial expression then does not betray his words when he declares himself satisfied with the work done during the pre-season. “The way we worked we deserve to start well” and then again “I was struck by the availability of everyone and not just the players. There is a great desire to work in the club.” There are also some digs, like the one on social media, shooting an insider who was arranging the pitch for tomorrow’s match. “This guy is working hard, not like those on vacation at the Olimpico” he wrote on Instagram referring to a turf that was not perfect during last Saturday’s match against Raja Casablanca. The attention, however, immediately returns to the Conference League and the objectives of the season with the word ‘time’ which remains key in the Roma project. “The club does not want isolated successes, but to build something, but I believe we can improve both as a club and in terms of results”, explained ‘Mou’, echoing a concept already expressed on the day of his presentation. The Portuguese will try already tomorrow, and the formation should be practically the same as that seen last Saturday at the Olimpico against the Moroccans, with the exception of El Shaarawy, whose place will be taken by Pellegrini, and the injured Smalling who most likely could return for the second leg. Ibanez will go on the field together with Mancini, now promoted to vice captain, while few doubts on the flanks with Karsdorp on the right and Vina on the left. In goal official debut for Rui Patricio, while the median will be composed of Veretout and Cristante. On the trocar Zaniolo, Pellegrini and Mkhitaryan with Shomurodov as the first striker. Abraham included in the UEFA list, but the Englishman will not be there tomorrow because he is struggling with the latest paperwork for the visa. Mourinho, however, does not like comparisons with Dzeko: “It is a dangerous trend in our way of thinking. Edin has an experience of 35 years, however, despite having won, Tammy is still very young”. However, he remains satisfied with the market despite the changed focus compared to the beginning of his adventure and the requested midfielder who has not yet arrived and who at this point could be a goal directly for January.
