Roma attacker Diego Perotti was interviewed today by Mediaset Premium, here are his words:
Did the loss to Juve close the race for the Scudetto?
The difference in points is large, however, there are still a lot of matches lot. In Turin we wanted to win or at least get a draw, and we did not. But we played a great game against a very strong team: we must do better, and we will have time to reclaim points.
Where must Roma improve?
We’ve left too many points in the middle of the road and it burns inside of me, like matches against Cagliari and Empoli. Those would be the important points if he had them today, those are the matches you have to win. This is an important thing to win the Scudetto.
What do you think of the next match in the Europa League against Villarreal?
The Europa League is beautiful, I played in it with Sevilla and for me it is important. We will face a tough opponent and it will not be easy, but to win in the competition we will have to face the strongest. The return leg that we play at home will be important.
