Emerson: “I am on the right track to returning as soon as possible.”

John Solano

Roma left back Emerson Palmieri appeared on Roma Radio today, Here are his words:

How are you?
I’m fine, in 10 days it will be two months since the surgery. I’m on the right track to getting back as soon as possible.

Is Florenzi helping you?
Yes, we are here together just like at Pinzolo. We talk every day, also with Strootman, he is helping me to be calmer in doing things. It’s normal that you feel a bit of pain, it is a bit of a nuisance, but when I talk to them I feel calmer about doing the exercises, this makes me feel better.

How important is it for you to stay with the team?
Very, I feel that I’m also in ritiro with them. I am also doing double sessions, it is very important to me.

You are always with the Brazilians…
We often joke around. When we are together, we are like a family, as if we were in Brazil. We feel very good together, that’s why we always talk and we’re together.

Why the Brazilians feel good in Rome?
There is a great tradition (of Brazilians at the club), now there’s 6 of us. It is a city that looks like Brazil, the people are also passionate, they are like Brazilians. Perhaps that is why we are fine here.

He is great, we’re always together. He is teaching me a bit of English, he has a lot of desire to get back and stay on the pitch and he has so much heart.

What do you think of Kolarov?
He is a top-level player, he came to help us. I can also help him: we must think that his value helps us and that we can help him. I’m glad to play with such an important player.
