In the previous round, Roma lost minimally to Inter, leaving them ranked in the middle of the rankings and 11 points behind the top team in Serie A.
At the beginning of the press conference, Mourinho talked about the condition of Paulo Dybala and Renato Sanches: “Renato and Paulo have returned to the team but they are not in the best shape. The medical team announced that both are not serious and can go on the field.”
After that, the Portuguese coach talked about Lecce in the upcoming match: “They are a good counter-attacking team, the flanks are very fast. They have a good coach who knows how to organize the team and they are have a good season.”
Finally, Mourinho answered when asked if the tight schedule is a big problem for Roma. He said: “We already know the number of matches we have to play when the season starts. This does not affect the big teams, but the smaller teams do. If we have 6 central defenders , we can play even every three days because we have many substitutions in the squad.”
“They don’t know what it’s like to play every 3 days, it will greatly affect the outcome of the match. They can know and pretend not to listen. This will only become more and more serious.” .”
“Here, I think we were unlucky. But things have existed until today and they will continue, Roma are really disadvantaged.”
