Roma boss Daniele De Rossi declared himself ‘proud’ of his team’s effort in tonight’s draw with Juventus.

In his post-match interview with DAZN, De Rossi commented, “I think we played an excellent match. 48 hours ago we were here in bandages after a very intense match, where we fought until the end and today we gave a performance of this type. I can only be proud and happy. of my team.”

“We are making a run for it and draws don’t make us so happy, but the attitude, how the boys help each other… is the demonstration of wanting to achieve something, a result, a goal, which they never stop aiming for. I am very happy with this approach, with this match, I thanked them.”

“There are 4-5 players who have played 10,000 minutes since I’ve been here. Yes, a bit of luck could help us. We had a lot of shots, we played a good game. They are strong, really strong. They have exceptional players and credit should be given to them too.”

“Dybala? I think he felt some discomfort in his adductor. He says it’s nothing serious, we’ll see what to do in the next few days. It shouldn’t be anything serious. Let’s hope so.”

“When we suffer, we get scared. It happened in Naples, it happened after the goal against Bayer. We feel a bit lost, but instead we have to cling to what we know how to do. Even after a goal conceded, the pitch is the same and the opponents are the same. In matches like this, fatigue helps to stretch teams because there are many errors and there are many counterattacks.”

“Bayer? We have to believe it, as if it were easy. If we think about the pitch, before the goal we had an important opportunity, we kept the ball. We had 60% possession. Without too much haste. There aren’t 5 goals to recover, 2 are enough. I also asked Allegri for advice, he told me that I can score even in the 60th minute. We have to be energetic but also intelligent, knowing that the game lasts a long time.”
