Torino coach Ivan Juric has spoken of his admiration for Jose Mourino.
Toro meet Mourinho’s Roma on Sunday.
Juric said, “They dominated the derby really, but the results aren’t coming their way. Roma will be highly motivated with players who are very difficult to face, especially at the Olimpico.
“Mourinho is a top coach. Many years ago he wrote some books and at that time he was really innovative, with an interesting working method, dividing up the week of training. It was many years ago, but I really loved that book.”
On seeing Andrea Belotti leave for Roma this summer, he added: “I have fond memories of him, he’s got heart and never held back. He wanted to try different experiences, but the lad always behaved perfectly with us and it is a pleasure to see him again.”
