Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes answered the media’s questions during today’s pre-match press conference.

The Argentine previewed tomorrow’s encounter with Bayer Leverkusen.

“De Rossi’s impact? I believe that the whole team has grown with his arrival, thanks to the enthusiasm that the coach has brought us. His style of play is much better for me and for the team and this has made us grow.”

“For me he was already a coach when we played together. I have always been close to him, he always treated me well. Having him as a coach is a pleasure and an honor. I hope to continue working well for him and for the team.”

“His personality is his strong point even when he was a player. Few were like that. What can he improve on… in my opinion he eats too much.”

“I like his style of play and his mentality. I’m finding the best condition, I’m getting better and better and I hope to continue like this because I have a lot to improve.”

“Playing this match will be very nice, we hope to do very, very well because to win you have to play at 100%.”
