"I like rivalries, it is a privilege to face a new derby and I will be richer for this experience," Mourinho told a news conference."Beyond this significance, I want the team to have more ambition than winning a derby, it is not our only objective this season."

"It is a great match to play and prepare for. I expect my team to play to win, even if we know that we can’t always do that," Mourinho said."Tomorrow we face a team with the same ambitions as us, but I want the same attitude and if we do not win, I want to leave the pitch feeling that we gave everything."

Roma suffered a blow in stoppage time against Udinese when captain Lorenzo Pellegrini was sent off by referee Antonio Rapuano for a second yellow card, a decision that left Mourinho frustrated."What can I do, go and argue with the referee, who would send me off and I miss the derby? I had to control my frustration," said the Portuguese.

"I do not go looking for arguments. I respect people. Rapuano screwed up because he is young, he will improve."(Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie, editing by Ed Osmond) Read more: CNA »
