Roma head coach Jose Mourinho believes that unlike Inter, Juventus, and Atalanta, the Giallorossi are not yet a team with a clear identity who are ready to fight for titles.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of his side’s clash with Sassuolo tomorrow, the Portuguese tacitician reflected on where he feels his team are at and what his ambitions are, stressing the importance of taking things one game at a time.

Mourinho returned to Serie A this summer for the first time since leaving Inter more than a decade ago, and he believes that his former side are more fully formed that the team which he is currently coaching.

The Portuguese managed the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur after leaving the Nerazzurri before returning to Italy to take charge of Inter.

He is aware that despite having had a highly successful spell in charge at Inter, he has it all to do again with the Giallorossi.

“We’ve played two games, not twenty,” he said. “After two games the gap is not 26 points, but there is only a one goal difference. This however does not mean anything. We have to think about ourselves, not the others. In January it will be time to look at where we are and what we’ve accomplished, there maybe we can say that the gap is real.”

He went on, “Now we don’t have to think about anything other than the next game. We want to win and I’ve read something where Allegri talks about the value of points. We can’t get away from this, but we’re not like Juventus, Inter and Atalanta. They are already teams with well-defined ambitions, we are growing.”

He concluded, “Like the fans, I am happy to have won the first matches, but I don’t think we are already brilliant.”
