D’Alessandro ready for Roma encounter

Former Roma player Marco D’Alessandro spoke to Roma Radio ahead of tomorrow’s clash against his former team.

How do you prepare for the match?
I’m very calm and happy to meet Roma tomorrow. We hope to do well, to be in the match. It will be a great thrill.

Have you taken the right path for your career?
I think I’ve found the right maturity, each experience has given me something. Now I have a chance with Atalanta in my first real season of Serie A. I’m happy, each Sunday is always an important test. Thanks to Colantuono, now I want want to leave Serie A.

A Roman in Bergamo…
I’ve settled – life is good. On a sporting level I’m fine, the cold, though, is a bit much.

Tomorrow’s match…
It’s difficult. Wherever Roma goes they make the match difficult for possession of the ball. We have the game of our lives. We’ve prepared well during the week, though.

If you had to take a player from Roma?
Pjanic, he’s a stratospheric player. When he has the ball he has already come up with three different moves. I really like him.
