Mourinho: “He plays the same team that played for Juve. The owners had to make up for the mistakes of others and some now laugh with their pockets full”

Jose Mourinho spoke at a press conference on the eve of Rome-Naples.

The significance of this match?
“It’s not a turning point, we are doing a positive championship, with more positive performances than the results. We have 15 points, we deserved more. I don’t think about the turning point, I think about winning. The game is difficult, they have won them all and they are doing well. “.

The conditions of Zaniolo and Karsdorp?
“They are ready to play, the team that played for Juve plays.”

The involution of some players?
“I don’t answer specifically about the singles. Globally I mean that there are many people laughing at what Roma did. The Friedkins have inherited many mistakes made by others, as has Tiago Pinto. The property has spent a lot on make up for those mistakes, and there are people laughing. Some laugh with their pockets full of money. So many millions have been spent and we had to spend millions more to create the conditions for the success of the project. When someone writes the lie that Mourinho he is not happy. Mourinho, like all the other coaches, wants more players, he wants a higher level squad. But Mourinho is not a bitch. Mourinho has great respect for Friedkin and Tiago Pinto. The only one I am responsible for Thursday’s defeat, no one else, because I played a team that had a great risk of losing the game, but I didn’t think of such a disaster. I did it for fear of injuries, of the field, of the climate , for too many par tite. I did it thinking that we will have to play with Napoli, Cagliari and Milan and I was wrong. The responsibility is mine alone. “

Can the match be an environmental change?
“For me a 6-1 with Napoli would not erase anything, it does not erase my mistakes. Next time the usual team plays with Bodø, and if someone gets injured it’s a shame. Here we work hard, but we have inherited a scar emotional experience of a record of injuries that I have never seen in my life. One of the great things we need to improve on is this and we work a lot with a lot of concern. Thursday’s match gave me the opportunity to rest some boys and let them play some good guys, who train a lot. In Ukraine I made some changes, but there were still Smalling, Ibanez, Pellegrini, we were balanced. With Bodø I thought about letting more players rest, but I was wrong, I’m sorry. “

Would a defeat lead to a rift with the fans?
“I don’t think about a negative result”.

The big match problem?
“There is no complex, the only thing that matters is that in the last two seasons we have finished sixth and seventh. If this year we finish higher and don’t win against any big names, it’s not a problem. I like to play the big matches, thinking about past results is a limitation. Tomorrow we will face Napoli, we try to win “.

Can the anger over the match in Norway help against Napoli? Better for you that Napoli won on Thursday?
“These things don’t interest me, it’s a match against a great team, against a great coach, they are obvious because they are real. Difficult match for us, I don’t think it’s easy for them either. I have a great pleasure to greet Spalletti, to laugh. with him. Thursday’s match is not forgotten, but I preferred to lose that one because we can still go through the round without problems, we can go all the way to the competition. I prefer to lose a match 6-1 that you are 1-0, but still do not forget “.

Are your statements about the team the result of disappointment with the result?
“When we only had victories in the league, I talked about San Pietro, joking but not joking too much. For example: if Chiellini is injured in Juve, he plays de Ligt. If Alex Sandro is tired, he plays De Sciglio. I speak of Allegri, because He doesn’t get angry with me. Our team has some level solutions in some areas, but in others they don’t, there’s no hiding it. A counter is a team, one thing is a squad. We are building a team, but we must build a squad and to do it you need more money, more market windows. And the property is making an incredible effort and must be respected. When I read that I have problems with them it seems absurd, I respect them and all Romanists must respect them. building the future of the club. There are people with pockets full of commissions, prizes, and then they disappear. And then the Friedkins pay, Tiago pays and I pay for going to the bench. But I’m honest and I take responsibility for the my choices, let others in peace they are doing a fantastic job. And if they can help me more in January or in the summer, I would thank them very much. Tomorrow you will see the bench, there are no poor players, but there are many very young players. “

Is there a need for a further sacrifice from the outsiders tomorrow in the defensive phase?
“I think they have to worry about Zaniolo and Mkhitaryan. They are good, all good, but Zaniolo, Mkhitaryan and El Shaarawy are also good. We have to exploit the strengths of the opponents, but Luciano also knows he has to worry about us.”
