The Giallorossi coach asked to anticipate the match against Toro in order to then be able to better prepare the Conference League final

Josè’s request made a noise Mourinho arrived after his Roma won the Conference League final against Feyenoord scheduled for Wednesday 25 May, or three days after the Capitoline team will face Toro at the Olimpico Grande Torino stadium, on the last day of the championship. The Portuguese coach would have publicly asked the League to bring forward the match against the grenades to Friday 20 May, in order to allow Roma to prepare better and with more time for the final of the European competition.

The League must guarantee contemporaneity

But to find out if the League will be able to accept the Portuguese’s request or not, we will have to wait for the results of the next day of Serie A, because in the last round we will have to guarantee the contemporaneity of the matches of the teams playing important objectives.
