Marco Cassetti: “Roma can do well in the Champions League and the league”

Former Roma fullback Marco Cassetti spoke with Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio this afternoon:

“Rudi Garcia? Last year, he surprised everyone. Now it’s been a good start. Roma is a place that asks so much and at the same time it gives you so much. This could be the only problem: last year, there were no expectations, this year, however, winning is a goal almost expected. It (the Champions League) definitely drains your mental energy, but in the market, the club operated in a way to offer many solutions and alternatives for Garcia. I am convinced that Roma can do well in both the league and cup. The draw was not very good. The group is difficult, but first they play at home against CSKA, who is the most reasonable of all the opponents so it may be an advantage. Winning can be important from a mental point of view.”
