Rui: “Important to recover our sense of security.”

Mario Rui to Roma TV after Roma’s 3-0 win over Palermo:

What did Spalletti ask from you tonight?
He asked Bruno to push more forward and for me to mark their winger who pushed forward but then we changed when we recovered the ball and both Bruno and I pushed forward and it was a true back three.

Do you think about the national team?
An easy answer, I think it is an ambition and a dream for any player to be able to represent their country. I’m not an exception to this and I’d like to play for my country.

Important victory mentally?
It was important to recover our sense of security that we had lost a bit, winning today and with this result away from home is very important. The result with Lyon is difficult but we will play at the Olimpico, and we have what it takes to overturn the result.
