Iturbe: “Thank God we won!”

Roma’s Juan Iturbe spoke to Sky Italia after the Giallorossi’s 1-0 victory over Udinese:

“It’s always important to start well, thank God we won. We knew it wouldn’t be easy but we managed. The goal? I can’t say anything, I think that one of the referees didn’t see it but the other said it was (a goal) and gave it to him. The derby? We’re fine but we have to win them all to stay there (at the top). We also expect to win this match on Sunday.”
