AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho in a recent statement applauded Man City star Ruben Dais, who named him the world’s best center-back.
Recall that the 24-year-old, who joined Man City from Benfica in September, was named Premier League player of the season after leading Man City to victory in the tournament.
Mourinho has stressed that his move from Benfica to Man City has strengthened his experience, which would be useful for Portugal during Euro 2020 which kicks off on June 11.
“Ruben Dias is currently the best center-back in the world,” Mourinho told The Sun.
“With his time in the Premier League with Manchester City, he acquires a different level of knowledge.
“He’s a fantastic central defender. And the one next to him, Pepe, is a 38-year-old man with a lot of experience.
“It can be a strength for Portugal because then they have a lot of talented players up front.”
Portugal are in the same squad as France which means they would need all the quality players they can muster to come out of the group stage and win the Euro 2020 Cup if possible.
