Shevchenko previews Genoa-Roma: “Roma are very strong.”

New Genoa manager Andriy Shevchenko addressed the media ahead of Sunday’s evening fixture vs Roma.

“I smile because the sun is shining in Genoa and we need optimism even though we have a lot of injuries. We will miss Criscito very much, for quality and importance within the team.”

“Avoiding relegation would be like winning the Champions League.”

“We won’t necessarily see my idea of ​​football, I have to adapt to the players I have at my disposal. And for this reason, tomorrow you will see the game system most congenial to the players that I have available.”

“We are looking for compactness. Pandev is a fantastic and available player, we’ll see if he plays tomorrow.”

On Mourinho:

“Beyond the latest results, Roma are a very strong team, dangerous in set pieces. They know how to create many chances.”

“Aside from what has been written in the past, I have great esteem for Josè as a coach and as a man.”

“If he made me play little at Chelsea it is because I had had many injuries and he was always clear and honest with me in saying that he played who was in the best condition.”
