It was clear to everyone that Renato Sanches was not a champion of continuity. His physical problems ruined his career because without him he would have been one of the strongest midfielders around. He is anyway, but at reduced speeds. The last tile dates back to yesterday when in the 28th minute of the match against Sheriff, after an extension, he raised his arm, approached the bench and asked for a substitution. Later, at the end of the match, it became known that he felt discomfort in his right thigh and also felt dizzy. Mourinho witnessed the whole scene from the stands and from the statements made at the end of the match he didn’t expect the second withdrawal of the season: «It’s always at risk, it’s not easy to understand why, Bayern didn’t do it, they didn’t do it PSG. He is a great footballer, but he needs minutes, he played a fraction in the championship, he rested three days and today (yesterday, editor’s note) he could have played another 45, but he stopped before that”, explained the coach.
Sheriff-Roma 1-2, from Lukaku’s goal to Renato Sanches’ injury: Stefano Carina’s video commentary
He is a player with unique characteristics in Roma, a box to box midfielder who knows how to carry the ball, fall back in defense and sneak into the area and score goals.
For this reason, Tiago Pinto revealed that he had been obsessed with him for a long time and would have liked to buy him already when he was a manager at Benfica. He made it last summer because PSG practically left him out of the squad due to his constant injuries. It didn’t go any better at Bayern Munich where in two years he missed 9 games and in the other of his loan to Swansea 30. At Lille the music hasn’t changed: 48 games out due to injury in the space of three years, at the time the fans were desperate and couldn’t wait for the club to get rid of him. He was defeated by Milan, but in the end PSG prevailed, where Renato missed 19 games in a year. Desperate in Paris they put him with the players who were up for sale, Pinto showed up and the deal went to Porto. On the other hand, as Mourinho said, if he had been intact he would not have come to Roma. In fact, the loan with right of redemption was made for a negligible amount if we consider the technical qualities of the player: 1 million with right of redemption at 15 which becomes an obligation upon reaching 60% of the matches. To date, a mirage.
