Roma midfielder Tommaso Baldanzi declared himself emotional after tonight’s 3-0 win over Frosinone in which he featured from the start.

Baldanzi was given the opportunity to feature in Daniele De Rossi’s starting formation against Eusebio Di Francesco’s side.

“I’m emotional tonight,” Baldanzi told Roma TV after the game. “Getting a chance to start gave me a strong emotion, my first start with this shirt is really special.”

“It wasn’t easy, we could have approached the game better, we allowed them to put pressure on us. But that happens, it doesn’t have to happen but it’s part of the game. We managed to react well and we took 3 very important points.”

“I’m really happy to be here. Being surrounded by so many quality players really helps you learn every day.”

“We are working very well. I settled in very well straight away, I’m happy and I hope to do the best I can from here to the end of the season.”
