What did Paulo Fonseca say
Head coach Roma Paulo Fonseca supported his successor Jose Mourinho to do well with the Giallorossi. Roma announced Tuesday that Paulo would be leaving the club at the end of the season and confirmed hours later that Jose Mourinho would take over ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

According to him, Jose Mourinho is a great coach, everyone knows that and he is confident that he will do a great job here.
Tough game expected
Jose will return to Italy for the first time since his time at Inter and his main task is to achieve anything close to the success he enjoyed with Nerazzurri. Roma is currently ranked seventh in Serie A and looks set to miss European football next season. The club has a small glimmer of hope for a Champions League qualification, but they need a wonderful turnaround against United in their second Europa League semi-final after losing the first leg 6-2. Paulo says it’s clear that it is not easy to beat Man Utd by four goals, but he has seen a lot going on in football. Nothing is impossible and he believes that anything can happen. He also said he expects a tough game. Rising up against Man Utd is always very difficult.
