Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout was interviewed today by Sky Sport ahead of the Giallorossi’s Friday showdown against Antonio Conte’s Inter. Here’s what the Frenchman had to say:
How does each come into this match? Is it coming at the right time?
Yes, because Inter are first in the standings, we are fourth. We have won 3 games in a row and will go to Milan to try and have a great performance.
What do you think of Inter?
It’s a great team, they’re in first. They have guys that are physically strong like Lautaro and Lukaku. We must have a great performance in order to get a positive result.
What‘a special about Pellegrini and Zaniolo?
They are important players for us. Nicolo is very strong and physical while Lorenzo has incredible quality on the ball.
You have also become very important for Roma, you are sort of a gladiator.
I know what I can do on the pitch. I like helping my teammates — I want to win every single match.
What do you like about Fonseca?
I really like his playing styles because it’s based on ball possession. Even his man management is important to us. I really like Fonseca.
Are you on your way to the Champions League?
Yes, but we must continue like this. We‘ve had a good first part of the season, but we have to go on fighting in every game with aggression. We can do great things.
How does the game end?
I hope it will be a good game, but a positive result for us.
