“We came here to win,” said the Italian midfielder. “We will play with determination to try and crown this year’s process of growth.”
“What I would like to say to my teammates is thank you,” he added. “We will try to put into practice what we want, but I want to thank them because it was a beautiful year.”
“We sacrificed ourselves for each other, suffered and rejoiced together, this is what a group does.”
“I finally have the feeling that we are a real team. For me, the captain, but also for others, everything is easier that way.”
“The fans have been incredible this season, they have always supported us,” he said of Roma’s supporters.
“Tomorrow is very important for us and for them. We’ll give everything we have tomorrow.”
“Is tomorrow the game of the season? Absolutely. It’s the first final for me, and I get to represent these colours, I couldn’t wish for anything better.”
