Roma midfielder Amadou Diwara was interviewed in the latest edition of AS Roma Match Program ahead of this weekend’s match against Genoa. These are his words:
You started training with Roma about a month ago. What sort of condition are you in?
Physically I feel very good. I chose to come back from my holiday early so that I didn’t fall behind my teammates. Since there’s a new manager, if I returned later, I would have to spend weeks trying to recover. Day by day, I’m starting to learn what the manager wants from me.
Why did you choose Roma?
Because it’s a great team and I felt it was the right place to start a new cycle of my footballing life. I didn’t think twice about it.
Was it the right choice?
Yes, every day that passes I am more convinced that I have made the right choice.
How do you deal with Genoa?
The right way to approach a match is with the right amount of ferociousness. We are working well and we look forward to getting serious and sending a signal to our supporters starting on Sunday.
Is there a teammate you’re particularly close to?
I’ve been here for a month and I get on with everyone, in fact, I’m well connected with my teammates. I speak a little more with Veretout.
Where can Roma go?
