El Shaarawy: “Genoa? A fundamental match.”

John Solano

Stephan El Sharaawy to Roma TV before Roma-Genoa:

We must return to winning in the league.
Yes, it’s the most important thing today. We are coming off two draws and a defeat, we must reverse course and gain three points to remain in third. The league is important right now, we can’t think about the Champions League. Genoa and SPAL are fundamental matches for our journey.

How do you not think about Liverpool?
We do, but only after these two matches. We have to gain points in the league after our last few results. Genoa is in a good moment, so today will be difficult.

Genoa will stay closed.
Yes, it’s an aggressive team and they defend well. We’ll need the best Roma possible because a victory would also improve our morale in addition to the points.

How important would it be for you to score?
It would be important to me, but first of all, we need to think about the team, then about the individual accomplishments.
