De Rossi: “It’s always great to score”

Roma vice-captain Daniele De Rossi spoke to Sky Italia after Roma beat Cesena 2-0 at the Olimpico this evening to take Roma to the top of Serie A.

“It will be a duel with Juventus, Genoa away is always a difficult game. The Italian league is difficult but Juventus and Roma are the strongest and we’ll fight until the end.”

“Today’s performance? We didn’t play well, at some points we stunned Cesena while at others we weren’t  dangerous. It was important to win because we knew that Juventus could slip up. Scoring at the Olimpico? I’m happy, it’s always great to score but it’s not my main job, anyone who knows football understands this.”

“Napoli-Roma? For months we have sent friendly messages back and fourth and I hope it is a tough game. The heat in the rivalry has increased, but we have nothing to do with what happened on May 3rd. We were shocked at what had happened. I hope it’s a good game. “
