General Manager Tiago Pinto stepped in front of DAZN’s microphones for a brief interview before kick-off to Genoa-Roma.
“As a team we take advantage of the international break to recover some energy and deal with injuries, but in a great team like Roma there is always someone out.”
“We have had bad news from the national teams in the last two days, but the feeling is good and there is a great sense of responsibility, as is the motivation to start this next cycle of matches.”
On the difficulties awaiting Roma tonight:
“There are absences on both sides, even with Roma. The arrival of an all time great of Italian football like Shevchenko is important for Genoa and for the whole of Serie A.”
“It will be a difficult match, they are energized and motivated to win for the coach, but we too want to fight, win and get the 3 points.”
