Sardar Azmoun proved crucial to Roma’s comeback win over Lecce.

The Iran international led the Giallorossi back into the game, scoring his first goal for Jose Mourinho’s side.

In his post-match interview with DAZN, Azmoun didn’t hide his emotions.

“We knew it was going to be difficult today, but we were focused until the end so as not to lose. We showed character, it’s the right reward for our hard work.”

“Scoring my first goal was an incredible moment. I’ve been waiting for this moment. I worked a lot to be ready tonight. I love this team and this city, my daughter was born here.”
