MOURINHO ROME – Roma returned to training in Trigoria after the 2-1 victory against Lecce, gained thanks to a goal by Dybala in the second half.
Rome, Mourinho: “Dybala’s injury is serious”
Roma coach Josè Mourinho gave an interview after the 2-1 win against Lecce. Below, the words of the Portuguese coach, also about Dybala’s injury:
On occasions and injuries:
“Occasions? You can train, but I think it’s more of a mental thing. The last missed chance by Abraham, he misses a shot in the 90th minute and doesn’t come back. This is typical of those who are not well. Even in training you feel a lot of self-criticism when one makes a mistake, surely the goals from Tammy and Belotti will arrive, more than Zaniolo, but Nico must also score. What worries me most is the lack of management of the game. We study our opponents a lot, we know how they press, but sometimes I see things in the game and I think my Italian is terrible. I say things but sometimes the opposite is done. Maybe it’s also tiredness. When Mkhitaryan and Veretout left, then Wijnaldum got injured and he was going to be the player who had to give rhythm to the team. Honestly, that player is missing ”.
“Belotti did quite well, but the other forwards lost the ball too easily, even the defenders for no reason wiped out. You need more tranquility and class, the fact that we don’t score so much makes you nervous. If we had made it 3-0 the game would have ended, it is a difficult moment that we have to get through. Every game we lose one player, now Dybala, the other time Celik. Wijnaldum’s situation for me as a coach is dramatic and I say that now that we have won. For me it is a dramatic situation, without him we are in a lot of difficulties because he is a fundamental player for him, other players are inexperienced. Camara arrived without knowing our reality, then he physically he was not very well. We have to survive as much as possible in relation to the standings and we hope that everyone is doing well in January. With Atalanta a great game and zero points, this time I didn’t like the match but we got three points. Why did Zaniolo come out? He took a shot in the head and couldn’t see anything ”. The midfielder, however, does not worry, he is fine ”.
“See it again before 2023? I’m not a doctor, I haven’t talked to a doctor, but I can say it’s difficult ”.
