With the game on the line, El Shaarawy gave Roma the lead to get the precious three points in a tense game at the Olimpico.
The Italian international was interviewed by DAZN following the highly emotional finale.
“It’s been a long time since I felt such an emotion. Running toward the fans, in the last minutes after scoring the winning goal. Fantastic emotion.”
“These are the moments worth waiting for and being ready for. We experienced players must understand that happy moments are there for everyone.”
On Mourinho celebrating under the Curva with the rest of the team:
“It was his thousandth game as a manager, I think it’s a very special emotion and we are really happy. Fifth win in a row, we take it home and enjoy it.”
“There’s certainly a magical atmosphere. There is a lot of enthusiasm around the team and we have to have to continue to keep it high. I think we are doing it. We have to follow the coach and keep this emotion close to us for the next matches.”
“We must immediately think about the next match, even after such a goal. This is the mindset we need to have.”
