Rome-Naples now it’s a championship match. The Neapolitans are in charge of Serie A after ten days, the Giallorossi are at -4 and have the same ambitions as the Azzurri. Nobody can hide anymore. Mourinho wants to close the gap, Spalletti will try to keep the season unbeaten. At the press conference on the eve of the Portuguese coach, he addressed many topics, spoke of his friend Spalletti, of kvaratskeliaof Zaniolo and also of Francesco Valdiserri, eighteen years old who was killed a few days ago by a pirate car in Rome.

Spalletti returns to Olimpico, where he has not had an incredible reception for a year now. José Mourinho will give you a good greeting: “Luciano is not a hypocrite, he is sincere, like when he says we’re friends and we respect each other. He knows Roma are in fourth place and therefore they are a team to be feared.” then the words about Naples: “They are first in the standings and after 10 games it has meaning, but even those who are favorites like Napoli sometimes lose.”

The theme of the Portuguese training did not touch him much, because the team is practically ready. In front will also be Zaniolo who he hasn’t scored a goal at the Olympic in three years, the last time against Napoli (ended 2-1). Nicolò is growing according to Mourinho and is improving: “I like it when he shows growth from an emotional point of view, like against Sampdoria, while when he doesn’t usually start the game he’s a sadder and individualist player, while on Monday he started from the bench with just one idea in mind : I’m a player as a team, I want the team to win and I understand the coach’s interpretation of the game. I saw a player of great maturity. This is a phase of growth that I really enjoy.”

Nicolò Zaniolo will be the starter in Rome - Naples, he will have to fulfill two stops in the Europa League.

Speaking of Zaniolo Mourinho, he criticized Uefa that added two more rounds of disqualification for the midfielder in the Europa League, Zaniolo was sent off against Betis and soon had a stoppage: “It seems mind-boggling to me, I don’t understand, the red could have been perfectly yellow. If the assistant decided red, ok, but three runs seems too much. On this guy it seems too much. I have to defend him, now that the press release is out, I’m not happy because I haven’t had this player for two decisive games but I’m sadder for the player, for his feelings”.

Mourinho in Rome – Naples challenges Spalletti, who has never beaten him.

Mourinho then encourages Zaniolo, he knows he can count on the captain pilgrims and look for Abraham’s goals, disappointing at the start of the season. But above all, the Portuguese coach knows that in front of him he will find a strong team and praised by Kvaratskhelia, the big surprise of this championship. Mou knows how to stop him and with a huge smile speaking Georgian he said: “I can’t do anything, at most I can kick him if he passes in front of me.”
