ROME – Mourinho he is worried, as last season after a happy start there was a bad setback. Upon returning from Bulgaria has granted a day of rest (scheduled), today the coach will speak to the team, which in any case fulfills in terms of commitment and application. There Rome can’t miss the next three games before the break: Empoli, Helsinki and Atalanta. The coach will tell the players to continue believing in it, not to give up, because the goals set are still within Roma’s reach. The Special One is an extraordinary manager, he perhaps realized that he had exaggerated in the criticisms after the game against Juventus. The attitude of him and the statements of him after the defeats of Udine and Razgrad, they went in a completely different direction. The coach needs to keep the group together and charged after that Wijnaldum’s injury had given the psychological blow to the players and risks affecting the locker room. But the Dutchman still has the cast on his leg and will be missing for most of the season. Until the day of the injury in training there was a Trigoria overflowing euphoria, in that period the companions of National they called Belotti to convince him to wait for Roma, assuring him that together they would raise another trophy. For the poor Felix, rightly defended by the coach, there were no longer the conditions to stay at Roma. Today the players have lost certainty, Mourinho with the help of the results will have to motivate them.
Rome, in Empoli we change
In the meantime, he will be back on Monday Abraham and Karsdorp. Something will have to change in a team that is too staid and predictable. TO Empoli will confirm Zalewskiwhereas Spinazzola he is still far from the best condition and will consider whether to send on the field from the beginning Camara, who, however, still does not have 90 minutes in his legs. But the midfield, by its own admission, does not work like this. The other solution could be to insert Shomurodov behind Abraham and back off Pilgrims in midfield, looking forward to Zaniolo. The captain is ready to sacrifice himself for the balance of the team, he will accept Mourinho’s decisions, even if today he feels that his role is that of attacking midfielder.
Mourinho, defense of Rome to be reviewed
It’s not just the midfield that worries Mourinho. The technician must study the reasons for the defense metamorphosis. He has conceded six goals in the last two games, while in the previous eleven he had only collected five. To feel calmer, he asked for another defender, unsettling Tiago Pinto. Mancini and Ibañez between ups and downs they do not grow, despite the coach’s confidence. Smalling seems to be the only certainty, against the Ludogorets in the final minutes he even moved him to play the center forward. The hypothesis of a return to the back four, which the coach has used in recent games to correct the team, is always around the corner.CopyAMP code.
