Moratti backs Mourinho to “dominate” Serie A

The former Inter president believes the Portuguese coach’s return to Serie A is the most exciting event of the new season.

Jose Mourinho

took charge at Roma after parting ways with Tottenham earlier this summer. The Portuguese coach, who has previously won the Scudetto with Inter, made a perfect start to the new season by winning all four of his side’s games before the international break.

Massimo Moratti

, who was Inter’s president during Mourihno’s spell at the club, says he is looking forward to seeing an improved Roma under the experienced manager.

“I’m very happy for Jose, it’s a great opportunity for him and for the Roma fans,”

Moratti told

Il Messaggero


“He’s a coach who gives great confidence and I’m sure that everyone will wake up happy in the morning. Mou has this effect, his arrival at Roma is the right fit.

“He wants to win as he always did, he’s happy and energized.”

Asked about Mourinho’s chances of winning the league with the Giallorossi, Moratti responded:

“I don’t think he will talk about it, because he is aware that it’s a complicated but not impossible goal,” Moratti continued. “He believes in it; he wants to do it.

“I don’t think he limits himself to fight for third or fourth place.”

The former Inter president says he likes the new Nerazzurri under Simone Inzaghi but believes Mourinho will dominate the league.

“I like Inter, but Roma… we won’t talk about it,” he said. “I believe that Mourinho’s return to Serie A is the most interesting event of the new league. There are many good coaches who will make the difference.

“Who will dominate? Mou.”

After the international break, Roma will play against Sassuolo in their next Serie A match on September 12.
