Roma attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the team’s second goal tonight sealing the victory against Empoli. The Amernian international spoke to DAZN after the game.
“It was important to win before the international break. It’s key that we hold on to the top positions. We played an almost perfect match.”
On finally getting back to scoring after 4 games without goals or assists:
“I was not worried. It was bound to come my way. You have to be patient. I thank my mates for helping me out.”
“The most important thing is to win and keep it up.”
On why he preferred to switch positions with El Shaarawy from left to right:
“I know Stephan is better off on the left. For me it’s the same to play right or left. I’m good either way. The important thing is to help the team.”
