Roma’s club manager Jose Mourinho had some things to say about the Germany’s shocking loss to Japan, He was asked on what he thought about the final outcome of the game and this is what he had to say.
“It was a fantastic achievement but to be honest it wasn’t a crazy surprise, Japan is a good team and has good players. They are getting an accumulation of experience at these events.
“The majority of the players are playing in Europe where they developed faster and they understand better what is a high level game and I think the mentality of the players and the team can also make a difference, I think in this moment in European football there is a big focus on the individuals on egos and when I look to your profile as people and your profile as country, I never coached Japanese players but I coached Asian players. In my case I was lucky because I coached the best Asian players and I understand that the mentality really is special, the team is the most important thing. People play for the team and they don’t play for themselves.”
