Mkhitaryan after scrappy Verona win: “We didn’t play well, but we did what we had to do. We needed these three points”.


Roma attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan appeared on Roma TV following his goal, which clinched the Giallorossi’s 3-1 victory over Verona. Here’s what the ex-Dortmund man had to say:

You returned with a goal. How do you feel and what did you think of Roma tonight?
I feel good, I missed playing, two months is too long. It’s a shame but now I feel good and I think it was very important to win today. We didn’t play very well, but the most important thing was the three points.

These were three fundamental points.
We expected an aggressive and tough Verona. We studied the opponent very well and did what we had to do.

Is there still have room for improvement?
Yes, we have a lot of room for improvement. The manager and many players are still new, the season is long and we must do everything to win. We must do what the manager asks of us.

From a tactical point of view, you didn’t have any problems adapting.
Yes – and that’s thanks to the manager and my teammates — all the players are rowing in the same direction. This is why it wasn’t an issue where my role was on the pitch.
