Roma coach Mourinho hails his Portuguese pair Rui Patricio and Sergio Oliveira

Roma coach Jose Mourinho has hailed his Portuguese pair Rui Patricio and Sergio Oliveira.

Mourinho can't believe goalkeeper Patricio isn't Portugal's first-choice.

He said, "He is a monster, the San Patrizio of Rome. He played 54 games and made two mistakes, with Sassuolo and with Bodo Glimt: his performance was very high. In Portugal it is said that he does not play for the national team after the season in the Rome? For me it is a heresy."

On Sergio, he added: "He is a champion, he knows how to win and he knows how to be a leader, an excellent teammate. I think he has been a fundamental element in our season."
