Roma is the most important thing, not my future - Fonseca

The Roma manager insists his ‘future is not important. Roma is the most important thing’ and provides an update on the injuries before the battle against Bologna.

Roma

have fought hard to secure one foot in the Europa League semi-final following a 2-1 victory over

Ajax

. However, they are struggling in

Serie A

.

They are two different competitions. Besides, as I said before the Ajax game, we’ve been in or around the Serie A top four throughout the season,”

said

Paulo Fonseca

in his press conference.

“I also think it’s important to note we have been missing some important players during this period. Serie A is a longer tournament, the Europa League is shorter and you rarely lose focus.

“Preparing for tomorrow is easy, because the players must realise the next match is always the most important one. We are against an aggressive Bologna side.

“It’s unlikely we’ll have Chris Smalling back for the second leg with Ajax, we’ll see about Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jordan Veretout. Leonardo Spinazzola is out tomorrow.

“Lots of teams who have internationals and packed fixture lists have had injury problems this season. The calendar is too congested and, as Pep Guardiola says, players are not machines.”

When the coach was quizzed about his future, he added:

“My future is not important. I am focused only on the present. Roma is the most important thing
