Juan Jesus: “The Mister gives me confidence.”


Juan Jesus, Roma defender, to Roma TV after the Giallorossi’s 3-1 win over his former club:

The match for you?
For me it was emotional, I played here for so long. I wasn’t sure how I’d do in this new role for me when I stepped on the pitch, but once the whistle rings I only thought of helping Roma and I think I did well.

The marking on Candreva?
He is a player who becomes dangerous if you let him send in a cross, and I know this helped me. The Mister gives me so much confidence and the team helped me a lot on the pitch so it was easier to do my job.

What it does means to beat Inter in his fashion?
It means we’re good, they’re tough, and they were playing very well. We knew the difficulties, but we believe we have done well, these three points were very tough, and now we must look to Wednesday and its importance.
