Ljajic appears on Roma Radio

Roma attacker Adem Ljajic appeared on Roma Radio late this afternoon, here are his words:

What happened in Turin?
People are not accustomed to the benches being near the stands. They (fans) still have to get used to this and need to have more respect for us. It was pretty much a success but in the end, what do we do? We must look ahead, surely I’ve answered already but there’s nothing more for us to do. We have to be quiet because if the coach puts you in, you must enter (the match) with a cool head. We’ll do this with the new stadium but we hope our fans won’t do these things.

There are a lot of players. Now everything is easier, we also know the coach, we are stronger mentally than last year. We play the most beautiful football in Italy, we have to demonstrate this on the field and be strong. When we enter the pitch we try to win. We try and do everything we can.

After you score a goal…
I get so many messages from friends, family, and my girlfriend. After the games, I always call my father.

What do you miss about Serbia?
I miss the tough mentality and my friends. I feel good here in Rome, it’s not far from my house. The fans here have a lot of enthusiasm.

The attackers are frequently changing…
This is to benefit us. The coach asks this of us, to change places. I like it a lot and this helps so much. We are all accustomed to it now, for the team, it’s important to make the right moves.

Florenzi says that you’re the biggest pain the in ass of the group!
I am one who definitely jokes the most, who’s laughing a lot in the dressing room. I don’t like to be serious.

Who’s one you feel closer to on the field?
Someone I feel closest to on the field is Daniele, he helps you in a positive way.
