19-year-old Edoardo Bove was given the opportunity to start in Roma’s 3-2 victory of CSKA Sofia in the last match of the Conference League group-stage. The youngster was interviewed by the club’s official channels after the final whistle.
“This is the result of the work we do during the week. From this point of view I have to thank my teammates because they helped me contain the emotions and helped me feel less pressure in the match.”
“It is a great feeling to get my first official start. I just have to thank my teammates who helped me to experience it in the best possible way.”
“It was very important to win after the last two defeats. We finished first in the group and it was the most important thing to do.”
“There’s no special dedication, I just thank my family because they have always made so many sacrifices to take me to Trigoria and get me this far. Then from then on I believe that I also have a small merit in the matter.”
