Roma coach Mourinho: Mayoral's time will come

Roma coach Jose Mourinho insists he's not freezing out Borja Mayoral.

Mayoral is on loan from Real Madrid, but is behind Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurodov in Mourinho's plans..

“Unfortunately, FIFA won't allow me to field 12 players at a time," said the coach.

“Mayoral is a fantastic professional, he has quality, intelligence and keeps his cool in front of goal, but I like Eldor and Tammy too. He wants more, his time will come."

Mourinho is wary facing Hellas Verona today under new coach Igor Tudor.

"I cannot comment on other clubs, I can only say as a colleague that it's disappointing to see coaches fired so early. As for what's behind it, that is not my business. I'm glad Mazzarri is back, we faced off in both Italy and England, while Tudor was looking for an opportunity.

Verona have zero points in three games, but could've easily picked up results against Inter and Bologna. We could see Tudor go back to the approach that Ivan Juric had at Verona last season and we have prepared for that eventuality."
