Roma midfielder and vice-captain Bryan Cristante declared the team’s objective remains advancing all the way to another Europa League final after last year’s disappointment in Budapest.

The Italian international spoke with Sky Sport on the eve of the return leg with Feyenoord.

“De Rossi? The choice to entrust the bench to De Rossi was very courageous on the part of the owners but it is proving to be the right choice. Because it wasn’t obvious, it wasn’t easy.”

“The coach needs no introduction but arriving halfway through the season, in a complicated situation and with players with whom he played as a teammate was not easy. From day one, however, he found the right balance to manage everything. We are building something important with him.”

“We are steadily learning new things with De Rossi. There is great enthusiasm and willingness to win together.”

“Feyenoord? We will have to give everything. There’s no other way. The atmosphere at the Olimpico will be incredible.”

“Over recent years we’ve gained precious experience in Europe, we know we have a strong team and we are doing well. The opponent is strong, but we want to give everything because we want to earn another final.”
