MOURINHO TAKES IT DOWN LOW: We are not favorites for the title, we need more players!

Serie A has arrived. Roma coach Jose Mourinho spoke about reinforcements and the team’s chances for the Scudetto.

The Romans are starting the fight for the title, the first since 2001, and despite the excellent transition period at the Olympics, he believes that it is necessary to further strengthen the team.

It is clear that we signed five players for seven million euros and it is clear that we did a good job. Unfortunately, we haven’t finished the transfer window yet. It is still open. We lost two important players Vertu and Mkhitaryan. We are satisfied with what we have brought, but for a season without fear we need more players – said Mourinho.

The first test for Roma’s ambitions will be the visit of Salernitana on Sunday. Historically, the teams that Mourinho leads in the second or third season win the title or finish as first runners-up, but the Portuguese still doesn’t see Roma as favorite for the title.

– Usually the second season brings much more predictability for us coaches. We are much more familiar with the situation and things are expected to improve. But the teams that spent more are competing for the title. Milan and Inter are among the first. Lazio even spent 39 million euros. We are not the favorites for the title – said “La Lupa” coach.
