Roma midfielder Zaniolo: With Mourinho we're confident facing Leicester

Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo is happy playing for coach Jose Mourinho.

Zaniolo was speaking ahead of Thursday's Europa Conference League semifinal first-leg against Leicester City.

He said, "Mourinho is one of the best coaches in the world! He drilled into everyone the art of never giving up, always being on your toes, uniting as one to bring home results. We hope to win something with him. With a coach who knows how to win, I think we've got a better chance.

“Winning the Conference League would make us very proud, but it'd be a starting point and not a conclusion. I will admit, 14 years without a trophy is too long.

“The Roma fans have always been by my side, perhaps even more when I am not playing, so I can only thank them and say they will always be in my heart."
