After the announcement of his contract renewal until 2022, Kostas Manolas spoke to Roma’s official website. These are his words:
How are you? It’s a happy Saturday?
When you win, it’s always good news. The team had a good match.
It was important to win because there’s an important match ahead.
It is important for everyone, nobody expected us to fight for qualifying the way we have against Chelsea and Atletico. We have always believed and we have to prove it on Tuesday in order to advance.
Now it’s official: Manolas renews until 2022! We are happy. You?
I’m very happy. The director told me he wanted me to stay plus I also wanted to remain. When things are wanted by both, it’s easy. Fortunately that was the case, I’m ready to give my best, like always, for this team and I hope to win something because it’s important to win.
Roma have the best defence in the league.
We hope to continue like this. The best defence brings home trophies. It is important that the team is solid.
