Adem Ljajic: “I have nothing against the fans…”

Adem Ljajic spoke with Sky Italia reporter Angelo Mangiante this evening and elaborated on his controversial gesture after his goal against Torino.

“For me, all the goals are important, even the easy ones. Against Torino, I had a nice goal after a great play. I was making this gesture because there are so many talkers who say things and don’t understand why. They put me in the middle, even if we (the players) don’t do anything wrong, we do our best for Roma. I had to make this gesture and that’s it. The fans? I have nothing against them, I have it with those who talk in the newspapers.”

“The Scudetto? We have the strength to win it and we take responsibility to say it just like Mister Garcia. My future? I am ready to stay 10 years at Roma.”
