I want to say two or three important things: bringing a player from the Italian national team there. it allowed us to improve our squad, then Andrea’s attitude during this period was important. His desire to come here was public and for me it is an important player who really feel this shirt. His 101 goals speak for themselves. alone. I’m sure he will be happy in Rome. ”

The questions begin

After six double-digit seasons, you did less well last year. How come?
“I can say that last year compared to other years I had a bit of a turbulent season. Most of the injuries were accidental and they kept me out a little longer than other seasons. It’s never easy when you start taking the condition to take it back. It was all an ups and downs “.

What challenge is Roma for you?
“I had a bit of a strange summer, because at market level in general it started later than usual. There have been many players who have remained free for a long time. My priority was Rome because I know I have found an important project with a team and a club with great ambitions. It was what I needed. I wasn’t looking for a contract that would protect me, but a sporting situation that suited me and Roma was the best opportunity. I wasn’t even there to think about it. team, Abraham is one more incentive to improve myself. “

How are you physically?
“It was a particular summer. When I saw that the situation was moving forward I hired an athletic trainer to train because I knew that the pre-championships had begun. Knowing to arrive later I had to be ready immediately, in fact I even played alone for 10 minutes a match. Physically I’m fine, but it will take time to refine the team mechanisms. I’m available “.

Can we do more than fourth place?
“It is a somewhat strange championship. For those who do not go to the World Cup it will be an opportunity to get back in condition because then from January to June there will be many matches. I think that the goal for Roma is to win game by game. That must be the main thing. From the first day I am here I felt the desire to win that is also there in training. This is a message that must always pass: Roma can win all the games. Then where we will arrive we will see it at end”.

When was the possibility of coming to Rome first proposed to you? Have you seen the Conference party?
“In July, a first contact, an interest with the director. At the same time, the Roma striker pool was full and it couldn’t be done. Last week we had another call to see if we could wait 72 hours and I gave immediately availability. After these 72 hours the director called and in 2-3 days everything was done. I saw the Conference party and we saw the union between Rome and its people “.

What will living with Abraham be like?
“Living together with Abraham is more like a goal to grow. It stimulates me to do more and more”

What was it like to find Dybala?
“We met with Paulo and it was nice to find him. We left Palermo together, we were both in Turin but in opposite teams and then we found ourselves here. In Palermo we were two kids, now we have reached a level of maturity that has jumped in the eyes of both “.

How did the stadium affect you on Tuesday?
“A magical feeling. It was nice to experience everything that happened, because I was there waiting and I felt the fans looking for me. It was like feeling the affection of the people on my skin. I did not expect a sold out like that , it was beautiful. The atmosphere, my entrance, the anthem before the match: it was like living a dream. It would have been perfect with my goal, but I will always remember it. ”
