Zabaleta: Roma played a great game

Manchester City full-back Pablo Zabaleta spoke today with BEin Sports and lamented his team’s 1-1 draw at home against AS Roma:

It was a difficult match, Roma deserved a draw because they played a great game. It was a crucial game for us, it was important to win at home. We wanted to take 3 points, but now, qualification will be more complicated. Now we will play with a lot of pressure, but we are strong both in attack and defense. Totti? He is a player of great class. Totti is really a super player and the way he scored was amazing. It’s obvious that he still can stand at high levels even at age 38, just look at all the goals he’s scored.”
