Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan spoke today to Roma Radio today, a day after scoring in the Derby victory over Lazio:
Is it as special as they say to score in the Derby?
I think it’s exciting, but it would have been nicer with full Curva. It’s a beautiful emotion, it’s deep, they had the stadium in their favor and that gave us a boost. Seeing the fans though today is even better.
It seemed everything was against Roma.
In the dressing room, we knew it would be difficult. We did not play well with Pescara, yesterday we used our feistiness to try and win every ball, the victory came thanks to that. These are things we seem to lack in other matches, but in the Derby you’re more charged up and I think that was evident.
