Roma president Dan Friedkin: “This is an important day for the club. The city and its people deserved it.”

Roma president Dan Friedkin released a rare interview to Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo following last night’s post-match celebrations.

“This is a huge emotional moment,” said the club owner. “I’m so happy Roma were able to win after all these years.”

“The fans deserved it, the city deserved it and the team deserved it.”

“It’s an important day for Roma, I know you’ve been waiting for it for a long time. It was a great match, I didn’t win – Roma did and so congratulations to the team.”
