Rome Instagram note taken by reporters: I’m on my way. Four words for a date, once landed in Fiumicino: “I will speak on August 13,” on the eve of the first season. Jose Mourinho chose the strategy of silence For his second summer as coach of Roma. Not unlike last year, in fact, when he was silent for a month and a half. In this case, however, the obfuscation was preceded by a cocky presentation conference at the Capitol, where the general issues between historical quotes and technical programming were addressed. But this time, his stance sounds like a message: With the market open, with an incomplete team, it is best to avoid fueling internal tensions. Instead, standing in front of the cameras telling lies to fans, who adore him unreservedly, wouldn’t be like him.
After all, Mourinho was expecting him in Tirana, in a moment of absolute happiness: “I will stay with Roma, I can be somewhat happy but I will not move from here.” The continuity pact was respected. Love has not changed. Mood, on the other hand, does. At the team meeting, which awaits the national team next Monday, only two reinforcements appeared at no cost: the very loyal. maticwho convinced Fredkins to invest in him, and the second goalkeeper svilar. back selec Will arrive next week, other purchases who knows. Meanwhile, Mkhitaryan came from last season’s group, who lost painfully to Thiago Pinto, and Sergio Oliveira, who was a good substitute in midfield, not to mention Maitland-Niles who was a temporary and irrelevant addition. It is clear, like many of his colleagues, that Mourinho expects a more advantageous market, corresponding to the difficulties of the economic situation and with the heavy losses of the club. He would like to score a striker (Dybala) and a half winger, as well as a left-footed midfielder who can integrate the defense: Three potential owners, not three random names.
The problem is that Roma, who are grappling with the Zaniolo affair and settling 11 layoffs, cannot satisfy him until he removes his contract. Last week, during the meeting in Rimini, Thiago Pinto asked Sassuolo to wait for him precisely for Frattisi because, according to the company’s guidelines, he must sell first. And now he probably won’t take it anymore. He managed to formalize the Celik purchase right after Florenzi’s deal with Milan was closed. The real test now is: Tiago Pinto has to make a lot of money from sales, after making two wrong purchases (Viña and Shomurodov, total 30.5 million plus bonuses) and after striking one satisfactory outgoing deal (Pau Lopez plus Ünder for more than 20 million in Total, thanks to Marseille who re-launched them) in three transitional cycles. Otherwise Mourinho will be “less happy” and Friedkins will be disappointed. Although a new memory won the trophy.
