During an interview, Jose Mourinho claimed that Roma owners want to ‘leave a legacy’ at the club, and are pushing for the 'success of the Giallorossi in the future’, and emphasized he’s a ‘much better’ coach than when has was at Inter.
The Portuguese tactician replaced Paulo Fonseca at the Italian capital but pointed out that the project was neither his own nor the owners, but one that would help in building a solid foundation for the success of Roma in the future.
Mourinho told Serie A's official YouTube channel that “This is not the Friedkin project nor is it the Tiago Pinto project and not the Mourinho project, but Roma project.”
He added that he knows the fans, and knows the square and if people think that the project is for him ‘to arrive tomorrow and for him to win the day after tomorrow’, it’s not the right path.
He further said: “This is a project in which the owners want to leave a legacy, they want to do something very meaningful for the club that is very sustainable. In the future, we want Roma to be successful.”
When asked what to expect from him and his time with Inter
Mourinho replied: “I’m much better now, I’m serious.” “I feel improved now because this is a job where experience counts so much.
He concluded that: “Everything becomes a dejavù because I’ve been through so many experiences since leaving Italy. Of course, it’s one thing to come to a country for the first time, where you start from scratch, and you have so many things to learn.
When asked if he can give the Roma fans something to celebrate
He said: “It’s truly incredible that in the last 20 years there have not been many moments to rejoice and cheer together." “But that passion has never faded.
“It’s very easy to be a great supporter of a team that continually wins. It’s another thing to be a fan in this type of situation, this means a lot to me.
“I hope the team becomes a reflection of who I am.”
