Houssem Aouar urges Roma to improve defensively after conceding to Salernitana

Andy Mattioli

Houssem Aouar made his official debut in this evening’s 2-2 thriller with Salernitana at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Algerian midfielder – who joined the capital club as a free agent in June – was one of the most positive performers tonight.

After the game, Aouar made some considerations regarding the result and Roma’s performance.

“Unlucky match, I think we deserved to win it,” Aouar told Roma TV at full-time. “We played a good game.”

“I think we need to improve defensively, but this game gives us confidence to improve in the next match and for the season as a whole.”

“I think I need some time. Last year was a difficult season for me, I think it’s easier me to play with these lads. I’m happy to play with them, it’s easier for me on the pitch, I’m confident for the future and for the season ahead of us.”
