Roma attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan addressed the media alongside Jose Mourinho to preview Thursday night’s game against Bodø/Glimt in the second leg of the Conference League quarterfinals.
“What we have done in the past is behind us, tomorrow it will be different and you have to play with your head on your shoulders.”
“Nobody cares what you won or did, tomorrow we have to play and prove we are strong and win the game. That’s the only thing that interests me.”
On his new position in the midfield, Mkhitaryan commented, “Obviously I would like to score more often and provide more assists, but the most important thing is to play and help the team win games.”
“Football is a team sport and not an individual one, for me it is important to help the team and win something together.”
“Since I joined Roma I have always felt the passion around the club, for me it has always been clear that I am here to win something. It’s difficult, but if were to win it would be crazy for the city and for the club.”
“I don’t know why we didn’t win something in my three years here, but I am confident that we are working towards it. We are a young team, not too young but we are still young, we have had several changes since last year and this is no excuse.”
“I think definitely in the next few years we can win something, maybe again this year but it depends on tomorrow.”
