Roma coach Jose Mourinho admits getting Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal is “the worst draw”.
Roma will meet Mourinho’s former club after defeating Lecce on Thursday night.
Mourinho said, “There’s a long way to go, we have a few more games and for me there’s no doubt Inter are the strongest team and overall squad of the league and the Coppa Italia.
“We therefore got the worst possible draw, but we will go there and try to cause a surprise. We’ll see if it’s possible.
“I don’t know how I’ll feel being at San Siro. I have to prepare emotionally, the way I did when Roma hosted Inter. I must try to have no emotions and try to make it a game like any other. I returned to San Siro to play against Milan and received insults of every kind! People won’t do that this time, but we’ll see.
“Obviously, my intention is to try to win the game and Inter fans will back their team and coach, but the respect is always there, because people don’t forget.”
