Pjanic: post match interviews with Roma TV & Sky Sport

Match winner gave his thoughts on Roma’s victory to Roma TV and Sky Sports. Here are his words:

Did your game improve, quality-wise?

We base our game on ball possession, but I’m happy I can give something in terms of off-the-ball work. It’s teamwork, our coach wants that.

What did you say to Manolas?

I’ve asked him in which way does Holebas take his free-kicks. Kostas said to me “He scores now and then”, but I felt confident…there was no problem, if I wasn’t sure I would have let him take the free kick, but I’m a specialist from that spot.

At these levels, quality makes the difference.

Absolutely, the team played very well, but Parma’s defending was well-organized. Thankfully, we managed to get the three points.

I bet Juninho heard his ears ring…

Those are the kind of spots we work on daily. I asked Holebas they way he kicks them, I took the responsibility and things went good.

Two teams are leading right now, will it be head to head?

I don’t know, the league is definitely more difficult compared to last year, we have more games but the team is performing well. We’re very happy for Adem as well. We aim for the top, we are facing Juve and other strong teams, this is just the start but we have the right mindset. This team and its supporters deserve a lot of satisfaction.
