Hours away from tonight’s kick-off with Roma, Shakhtar Donetsk sporting director Darijo Srna sounded very emotional about the opportunity of playing a in a full Stadio Olimpico.
“It’s a huge emotion for us,” he told Corriere dello Sport. “To get to play in a full stadium after all we’ve been through is amazing.”
“This will be a great experience for our players,” he added.
“Roma are very strong this year, now more than ever. But it’s only normal when you have Mourinho. Let’s hope we don’t concede too many goals, after all it’s just a friendly.”
