Italiano was keen to congratulate Mourinho on reaching the Europa Conference League final.
“Mourinho is a winner. What he's achieved in his career is extraordinary and he continues to impress at clubs where it is not easy to achieve success, taking Roma to a Final," said Italiano.
“I thanked Mourinho for his compliments after the game earlier this season and wish him success in the Conference League Final.
“The fact we are only three points behind Roma is something for us to be proud of. Their defensive solidity is particularly remarkable and we will try to give them problems, at the same time limiting the quality of Nicolò Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini."
