Peres: “To win would be a nice gift on my birthday.”


Bruno Peres to Roma TV ahead of Lazio-Roma in the Coppa Italia:

Is your birthday extra motivation for tonight?
First of all, it is important for us today, with all due respect to them, today is a match for us to win. Plus it is also my birthday and it would be a nice gift for me.

Winning as the away team can be decisive?
We know there are 180 minutes in this tie but we have to be smart and mature to take-on the match tonight and interpret it well. It will not be easy but we will play to win, doing it as the away team would be a very important step.
