Peres on Totti, Samp, and the Europa League

Bruno Peres was interviewed in the latest edition of the AS Roma Match Program ahead of this week’s match against Viktoria Plzen, here are his words:

What happened on Sunday at the Olimpico?
A tough match, but at half-time we changed our spirit and played as we should, especially advancing the range of our play and it worked.

With the entrances of Dzeko and Totti, how did that change the match?
Yes, it’s true. With Totti on the pitch everything is different, he is a legend. He always makes the difference and he is important for us.

The next match in the Europa League is upon us, how will you approach it?
We have to play like we did in the second-half. We know it’s an important match but it will be difficult. It takes the spirit that we had in second half with Sampdoria to win the match.

A judgement on the Europa League group you’re in?
A difficult group: it seems easy, but it is not. This are differs when you step on to the pitch. You have to do well to win matches. I believe we have the means to have a good group round.
