El Shaarawy: “Our only goal today was to win.”

Stephan El Shaarawy in the mixed zone after Qarabag 1-2 Roma:

Was this a very important match?
Yes, the only goal today was to win and we focused on that, even when we were suffering. Matches can be won in this way. We will analyse the mistakes we made, but the three points are important.

Now you have to do extraordinary with the injuries of Defrel and Perotti.
I am young and fully available to the Mister. Now we have another important match against Milan and we will prepare for it in the best manner possible.

In the Champions League there are no easy matches, but does this performance have you worried about Chelsea and Atletico?
It does not bother us because in the past, these matches are ones we would have lost. We have brought home the result while suffering. This happens in European play. We are happy with the result, we could have done better in the second half, but these three points give us more strength ahead of the upcoming matches.

Are you favorites against Milan?
No, I do not think so. Milan has had two negative results but they are a team that has revolutionised and have important players. They will put us in trouble and they will be playing at home in front of their fans. But we will be ready.
