Mourinho Fully Committed to Roma, Abraham Discloses Tidbit

Everton attempted to poach José Mourinho, but he will stay at Roma, likely for multiple years. The coach confirmed it after defeating Lecce in Coppa Italia: “I am very satisfied here from a happiness and passion standpoint. I feel that people trust me.”

“Instead, from a footballing point of view, I do not want to compete to finish between the fourth and the eighth position. However, it is a momentary situation. It is a new course and next season will be better than this one. Our squad has some limitations, and we are aware of them. Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sergio Oliveira give us more options, and we improved. I would not switch this team with any other for the next three years. I gave them my word, and I will keep it as this is my project too.”

Tammy Abraham revealed to Sky that Mourinho directly convinced him to join Roma: “Talking to him facilitated the transfer, and he was instrumental in bringing me here. One of the first things he told me was whether I wanted to stay in rainy England or move to sunny Rome. It is an honor to work with him. He has won everything, and I want to do the same. Coppa Italia represents a nice opportunity. I am happy for scoring 15 goals up to this point, but I want to bag a few more. I am lucky to be part of a team that creates a lot, and I want to help them as much as possible.”
