De Rossi after 2-0 win: De Sanctis is one of the best

Daniele De Rossi spoke to Sky Italia after Roma’s 2-0 victory over Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico.

“It was the first match, it was a long time since we saw the fans and as a squad we went to greet them. The game? It was the first match and being ‘off’ just a bit is normal, but also Fiorentina is a proactive team and we risked too often. But we have De Sanctis, who is one of the best and he saved us (tonight). The Scudetto? It’s the first game, we’ll begin to pester Juventus and hope they get less points.”
