(Post-match) Dzeko: “The goal finally came but the most important thing were the three points”.

John Solano

Edin Dzeko to Sky Sport after scoring in Roma 1-0 Udinese:

A goal in the league at home has been missing for a year. Do you feel like it’s a weight off?
Yes, that goal was worth three points. This was the most important thing — but it was also important for me surely since I finally got a goal at the Olimpico.

Ranieri has so much trust in you. What has this manager changed?
Above all: a team that wants to win matches must not concede goals. If we don’t concede goals then we can do good things, like today.

Is Roma in this Champions League fight?
We’re right there. It’s a bit of a miracle considering how this season went, but we have to play all the matches as we did in the second half, with ruthlessness.
