Iranian attacker Sardar Azmoun was one of the better performers in last night’s comeback win over Cremonese in the Coppa Italia.

The 29-year-old came on in the second half and helped lead the team’s comeback alongside Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.

In his post-match interview with Sky Sport, Azmoun commented, “It was a good match, the start wasn’t easy. We deserved the victory, I congratulate the team for what we did.”

“Who wouldn’t like to play with Dybala and Lukaku? Then there’s also Paredes and Pellegrini. I am very happy to play with them and hope to do so often again,” he said.

On the fans’ appreciation of him, Azmoun said, “When I first arrived here it was as if people didn’t want me, but now I have an excellent relationship with the public. I immediately thought that I would have to work hard and I am really happy to be a Roma player. And like all other players we are ready to die for this team, this is my goal.”
