Huijsen Dad Highlights Mourinho Influence in Roma Move

Dean Huijsen made his Roma debut just a day after joining from Juventus on loan and turned in a good showing against Atalanta. His father Donny commented on the transfer and more to Tuttomercatoweb.

“The sensations are very positive. It’s never easy to play at the Stadio Olimpico right away. He had a very good impact. The goal of this switch is finding more minutes, because he wasn’t getting them with the Bianconeri. He’ll surely return in Turin with more experience, so he can fight for a spot next season.”

Roma pipped Frosinone to the post to sign Huijsen from Juventus.

“We thank them for their interest, but it wasn’t hard to choose when José Mourinho called.”

The youngster agreed to a renewal before departing.

“Yes, he’ll add a year to his contract. It was part of the deal with the Bianconeri. They behaved very well during the negotiation. The two clubs did everything to complete the transfer positively. We’re grateful for what happened.”

Frosinone’s director Guido Angelozzi slammed the entourage of Huijsen for the collapsed acquisition.

“We hope he can understand what happened. If there’s a chance to play for Roma, you try to seize it immediately.”

The prodigy came off the bench at halftime to replace Diego Llorente, who suffered an adductor injury and is questionable for the next matches. The Giallorossi brought in him to substitute for Evan N’Dicka, who’s away for AFCON, and the injured Chris Smalling.
