How much will you give me if I don’t ask you too how much would you like to coach Roma?
“Nothing, because I will answer you without problems … Everyone knows what Roma was and always will be for me: a second skin, a passionate and pure love. Of course I would like to train it, when I am ready and I will have earned it for my worth. as a coach and not because of my past as a footballer. I think it will happen one day. But it is a desire, not an obsession. Now I want to have my experiences in Italy or abroad. ”
The fans would have wanted you as deputy Mourinho.
“Two minutes after the announcement of his arrival, my phone was flooded with messages: ‘You will be the deputy …’. It was the desire of the people, for which I am like a brother. But to anyone who claims that Mourinho could needing me I suggest you go to Wikipedia and see everything he won. Here, I assure you he won it without me… “.
What can the Special One give to Roma?
“Even before arriving he had already given so much. Expectations, dreams, enthusiasm. What every fan eats. After the farewell of Totti and mine, finding a new identification was a strong need for the Roma fan.”
People also dreamed of Totti’s return.
“He seems calm and satisfied with his new role as agent, which also allows him to enjoy his family. But I also hope to see him again one day in Rome. Instead of repeating that he was not ready, that he should have studied, I believe that Francesco would have deserved a real chance as a manager, because he knows so much about football. Not being valued and considered had turned him off and disappointed him. It hurt me to see him like that. ”
