Juan Jesus recounts Roma exit after Napoli’s win at the Olimpico

Andy Mattioli

Former Roma centreback Juan Jesus put in an impressive shift in tonight’s win over Jose Mourinho’s team. The Brazilian defender – who has been representing Napoli’s colours for the past year and a half – spoke about winning against his former side in a post match interview with Sky Sport.

“Tonight wasn’t revenge for me,” said Jesus. “I’ve always had a good relationship with Roma, I have a special bond with the city and the club. I have always respected it the same way I respect Inter.”

“I had a difficult time during my last two years at Roma, and now I defend the colors of Napoli and I am happy.”

“My time at Roma came to an end because of one person, and not because of Roma. Today I proved that I am still alive, unlike what some people said.”

“In football there are no longer starters and bench players. Everyone commits to the cause. The team is doing a great job together with the coach and we have to congratulate everyone on tonight’s victory,” he concluded.
