Roma attacker Romelu Lukaku was back on the team’s scoresheet earlier tonight as the Giallorossi beat Cagliari 4-1.

In his post-match interview with DAZN, Lukaku described his special relationship with Jose Mourinho and praised the team’s performance in tonight’s victory.

“This is not my team. This is Roma. We are a team, we have to improve because we are in a difficult position but we are growing with each game,” said the Belgian attacker. :We have to do better for the fans and the city. I’m happy for this victory.”

“I’m a professional, I worked a lot this summer. Many people have talked about me, I don’t talk and I show what I’m worth on the pitch. We have to continue like this.”

“Dybala? He’s fantastic. He’s someone who helps the team and helps me a lot. It’s a shame that he got hurt, let’s hope he can recover soon because he is the most important player in our squad.”

“Mourinho? We have a special relationship, he knows my family. I have faith in him and vice versa, but he’s tough when he needs to be. It’s the only way to grow as a player.”
