Jose Mourinho has admitted that his Roma side will face a very strong Leicester team, in the semi-final of the Europa Conference League.
Leicester made history on Thursday after they defeated PSV 2-1 away to qualify for a first ever European semi-finals. The first leg ended goalless.
The Foxes had to come from behind thanks to goals from James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira, with less than 20 minutes left after Eran Zahavi had given PSV the lead.
On their part, Roma thrashed Bodo/Glimt 4-0 to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the reverse fixture.
And commenting on the clash against Brendan Rodgers’ side, Mourinho stated the 2015/2016 Premier League champions operate at a high level.
“We are going to play against a Premier League team and the Premier League is the strongest competition in the world in terms of nations,” the Portuguese said in his post-match.
“Leicester is a team that won titles recently and it’s a team that competes every weekend at the highest level, I think they are a very strong team.
“But we are Roma and we are going to play we have the second leg at home with our wonderful so we are going to try.”
