Roma manager Daniele De Rossi analyzed the team’s performance in their resilient 3-2 win over Torino.

In his post-match interview with DAZN, De Rossi spoke about the difficulties encountered in tonight’s win.

“I liked the way we managed those final minutes of suffering. I told Rasmus [Kristensen] that Torino never give up and that it wasn’t over. They didn’t give up and we suffered until the end.”

“I like to win by suffering until the end but these are matches that we have to kill because they press for the whole match and they make you sweat.”

“Dybala? Champions are decisive in this sport and that is not to be questioned. There was balance in the first half because they are a team that plays with everyone. They are a strong team. We knew it was going to be tough after the 120 minutes we played on Thursday.”

“A lot of teams would have been killed by Torino’s equalizer. We were good enough to react and win it,” he added.

“The first goal was a great goal from the attacker Zapata. On the second one we clearly lost focus and must work on it.”

“I am also happy with the entry of Renato Sanches. Smalling’s injury had to be managed from every point of view, including emotional. He is an exceptional lad and a great professional who had a great desire to return. He played very well and I thought he wouldn’t last as long as he did”

“I also really liked Lukaku who came in and did what he knows how to do. I also liked Azmoun, but at that moment we needed someone like Romelu to extend the team and help us move up.”
