On the eve of the first match in Japan against Nagoya Grampus, José Mourinho will speak at a press conference. Roma will leave for Japan today. At 15 the flight with the team and a group of fans – those who are part of the Business Club – will take off for Tokyo. In the land of the Rising Sun, Roma will face two friendlies: Friday 25th against Toyota’s Nagoya, while Monday 28th against Yokohama F. Marinos.
The Special One will not have Bryan Cristante with him: the midfielder will remain in Rome after the operation on the scaphoid of the left wrist, which prevents him from facing contrasts. Rick Karsdorp will also stay at home in Amsterdam, missing two at practice despite being regularly called up.
