Roma manager, Chris Smalling has come out to say that he holds no grudge against Jose Mourinho. He recently revealed that he is putting all past differences aside amid the current excitement at Roma.
According to him, Jose is clearly a born winner and he loves to push his players to their limits to achieve the best result for whichever club he is managing.
Smalling added that the Portuguese coach getting appointed was very surprising and it’ll be great to play under him again.
His words, “Ultimately, if the manager wasn’t speaking about you and didn’t want you to play and push, that is when you need to worry because he has stopped caring about you, he doesn’t want you involved and he doesn’t want you to play.”
“He is a born winner. He likes to push everyone to the limits. That is what he has done throughout his career and it has reaped results.”
On Jose’s appointment, “It was quite a surprise to a lot of us, but there was initial excitement from everyone.”
“I knew the media would build up something about our relationship in the past. But from a personal point of view, it is a good thing because I have played under him.”
“We have won trophies together. He made me captain in one of those finals – the 2017 EFL Cup final – as well, so having the chance to play under someone who you know is good, has been so successful and is so determined to win trophies at all costs is a positive.”
“I know how big a deal it would be to bring a trophy of some sort to the club.”
“Jose’s history shows the club has picked the perfect man to do that.”
