(Post-match) El Shaarawy: “We adapted well to what the Mister asked”.


Stephan El Shaarawy to Roma TV after scoring in Roma 2-1 Empoli:

It’s a victory that helps morale.
Yes, it was a success that mattered regardless of how much we suffered and our fatigue. We clawed and nailed and did what the Mister asked of us.

For once, VAR came to Roma’s aid.
It should be used, fortunately they used it well. We take home the 3 points, which are important for the table and for the upcoming matches. We changed our system but we adapted well, so we are satisfied and we must move forward.

You wore the captain’s armband.
After 3 years here, I feel different and important, but I only borrowed it, though, it was still an honor to wear it.
