Minutes away from kick-off to tonight’s fifth engagement of the season, Roma centre-back Gianluca Mancini spoke about the team’s improved defensive stability compared to last season and about the crucial role of each man contributing to the overall defensive effort.

“Being defensively solid is a necessary base for any team that wants to fight to win every game,” Mancini told DAZN.

“The secret lies in the team remaining compact: it’s not only the duty of centre-backs and fullbacks. It’s a team effort,” he added.

“If the team stays compact so does the defense,” the Italian international concluded.
