Mourinho, strategy or reality?: “I’m not optimistic about Dybala”

Paulo Dybala He has barely been able to play two times in the last month due to ankle problems. Since the match against Atalanta on April 24, the Argentine has only played 19 minutes against Inter in Serie A and 13 in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen.

“We are working so that he plays the last games of the season in the best way.” While Thiago Pinto, Roma’s sports director, reassures his star’s chances of playing in the final against Sevilla on Wednesday May 31, coach José Mourinho maintains a completely different position. “That’s wrong. I don’t know how it will be in 10 days, but no, I’m not optimistic.” stated the Portuguese on DAZN after the draw against Salernitana, this Monday.

Known for his handling of time and speech, Mourinho did not quite believe these words about his best player in Seville. Dybala is by far the great offensive bulwark of the Romans, with 16 goals and 8 assistss this season in all competitions, and his absence in the most important game of the campaign would be a severe setback for the Giallorossi.

Mou also spoke about his other footballers who have had physical problems in recent times: “Smalling and El Shaarawy played 90 minutes, Wijnaldum also many minutes. I’m not sure if Camara’s is an injury or just tired. Celik is fine, Spinazzola we will see”.
