Pjanic Ready for the Derby

Miralem Pjanic spoke briefly before entering the Stadio Olimpico for the Derby della Capitale.

A look at the standings does not seem that this is a difficult game…
“It’s a derby, there’s never a favorite. It’s true that we’ve had a great season compared to them, we believe we are stronger than them, but the derby remains a very open game, a battle. We are prepared and we want to win for our fans.”

New coach for the new year…
“We expect Lazio to play with confidence, they are getting the results. But we’ve made our own results from the beginning, the game should be fine if we put the necessary commitment and above all, the match-ups. We have the quality and we want to prove it.”

You can also play in the Coppa Italia?
“I was unwell, I had a small accident but now I’m available for important matches and I want the team to win.”
