Former Roma winger Marco D’Alessandro: “We can stop them…”

Former AS Roma and current Atalanta winger Marco D’Alessandro, who was born in Rome, spoke to L’Eco di Bergamo ahead of this weekend’s match as he faces his former team for the first time.

“Scoring this weekend? It would be my first goal in (Serie) A, how do I know what type of reaction I’ll have? Sometimes this is played around in your head – but I don’t know what I’d do, but I’d for sure be happy and also maybe win. We’ll face the strongest Roma in the last ten years. They’re close to the won that won the league title (in 2001), which had players like Batistuta and the monstrous Montella. But I am convinced that we can stop them.”
