Zeki Celik delighted with Roma win over Empoli

Andy Mattioli

As Roma beat Empoli away from home in a tight, hard-fought 2-1 victory in Tuscany on Monday night, Zeki Celik proved to be once again a reliable alternative to Rick Karsdorp who was forced to forfeit the match due to persisting muscle fatigue.

The Turkish international filled the void left by Karsdorp’s absence on the right flank and provided steady defensive coverage throughout the match as well as helped push the team forward in the second half.

Celik took to Instagram his delight at the win with a dedicated post in which he wrote, “We needed to come back with a win, and so we did. Congrats to the whole team!
