Video / Who is a very important Albanian friend for Jose Mourinho and a message for the fans in Tirana
In yesterday's press conference, Jose Mourinho from Rome expressed his happiness that the match is played in Albania for several reasons, which he listed. Among them he mentioned the fact that there is a very important friend here, but without saying his name.
Mourinho called on the Albanians to support Roma as they have Marash Kumbula who plays for this team and added how nice it would be for Kumbulla to raise the cup in his place.
"The final in Albania is a pleasure for me. A double pleasure. Pleasure because we play in the final and because I go for the first time to play in one of the few places in Europe that I have not played. It is a pleasure because I have some friends in Tirana and a very important friend for the Albanian society.
I think countries like Albania deserve this opportunity. What I expect from Albanian fans is to be with Rome. Whether or not Marash Kumbulla plays, is their only connection to the team, so they should be on our side. "It would be nice if Kumbulla raises the cup in his place," said Mourinho.
