Kostas Manolas: To win is important

Kostas Manolas spoke with Roma TV after the 1-0 victory over Empoli:

“To win is important, it was a difficult game. I want to give everything for the team, and I’m here to help this team in the future. My feelings? It’s a great team, we’re working well in and out of training, the boys are helping me and it shows on the field. So far we have won two games. CSKA? It is the first game in the Champions League we have to play well to win because there are good teams. We hope to take all three points. Is it difficult replacing Benatia? Benatia is an excellent player, but as I said, I am the future for the team, I will work hard to replace him and to ensure that Roma has a good season.”
