Roma boss Daniele De Rossi spoke to Roma TV on the eve of the match with Napoli.

The Italian manager addressed Evan Ndicka’s condition and confirmed his place in the Giallorossi’s starting eleven.

“Evan is fine, he trained and made it clear above all with his words that he felt great, he’s not afraid of tackles, of clashes, he’s back at 100%.”

“He will start together with Mancini and both will have a challenging duel ahead because Osimhen is one of the strongest center forwards in the world.”

“The most difficult aspect of this part of the season is the number of games to be played in such a short amount of time. All the teams we will face are of a very high level, fresh forces would be needed at times, but in most cases the others also have other commitments.”

“It will be difficult but let’s not feel sorry for ourselves, Napoli is the only team that is close to Inter in terms of level, they were unplayable last year, this year they are in difficulty but they are always a tough team.”

“I came here three months ago if you had told me that I would be fifth now with 4 points over Atalanta and 6 from Lazio I would have signed up given where we started.”

“We have gotten back into this Champions League race which seemed almost impossible, the teams behind us are strong, the calendar is not easy but there is great awareness of having played great matches with great teams and bad matches with teams that are weaker on paper. Atalanta scored a point between Cagliari and Hellas Verona, we would all have laughed if we had predicted it, but at the end of the season it can happen.”
