Gianluca Mancini: “Smalling and I have a strong understanding of each other”.

John Solano

Roma defender Gianluca Mancini was interviewed by Sky Sport after keeping a clean sheet and scoring in the Giallorossi’s 3-0 win over Brescia.

Can goal scoring  defenders be an extra weapon?
As it has been said many times, us defenders must think about defending – our goals can certainly help. However, up front we have some great player who can handle it.

What is the understanding like between you and Smalling?
It‘s strong. We always train together along with Juan Jesus and Fazio too. We knew that Brescia plays with two strikers and that we could each handle the one-on-one’s.
