“Roma are a giant club, but the nature of the projects is another thing”: said Josè Mourinho, in the press conference on the eve of the first league match, against Fiorentina. “When I arrived at Chelsea, Inter or Real we had to win immediately – he added, speaking of the goals in the Giallorossi -. Here is a different situation: it is a club that hasn’t won for a long time and that last year finished at 29 points. from first place. It is obvious that time is needed and in football it is important. Leave us alone. “

There is also a controversy towards the Olimpico field, already with the Raja Casablanca considered not up to par. “I reject the connection between Smalling’s injury and the pitch that was not in good condition – explains Mourinho – The pitch was not well and I have doubts that tomorrow will be good, but I have faith in the professionalism and pride of the people, I think that may be in a more acceptable condition “. On the match against Fiorentina, however, he has few doubts: “I will not make many changes, we need to play and the victories help to overcome the tiredness. Abraham will be called up, but in these days he had to train alone”. Finally a joke about Florenzi’s farewell: “I wish him the best, but may he come behind us”.
