Minutes away from kick-off to Salernitana-Roma, Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini was asked about his personal ambitions given UEFA’s recent inclusion of the Italian midfielder in Top 15 players of 21/22, as well as Roma’s ambitions following the Conference League triumph.
“As a player I want do more,” he replied when asked about UEFA’s nomination. “I want to do better than last season.”
“If I scored 14 goals, then this year I want score 15.”
“If last season we won the Conference League, then we must do something special this year,” he added in brief pre-match interview with DAZN. “This year we have other objectives worth fighting for.”
