Angeliño shares insight into rapport with De Rossi after Feyenoord win

Andy Mattioli

Roma fullback Angeliño came on late in extra-time of the Giallorossi’s eventual victory against Feyenoord on penalties.

The Spanish defender was asked about his rapport with coach Daniele De Rossi – the man responsible for his loan signing in January – in the post-match media appearance.

“Before the penalties, De Rossi told us to remain united and focused and seize the moment,” Angeliño told reporters.

“Obviously it was a hard-fought victory, but in the end it is very important for the team. We suffered a lot and I’m very happy for the team.”

“De Rossi? It’s like having an additional captain on the sidelines. He’s like an extra player for us. He gives us a lot of strength ahead of each game.”

“Roma is what we saw here at the stadium, the fans cheered us on and shouted throughout the whole match. Being here is an honor for me.”
