Monchi: “I did not want to draw Sevilla.”


Roma sporting director, Monchi, spoke to SportMediset today after the draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. These are his words:

Did you want Sevilla?
No, I said it before that I did not want to draw them. We drew Shakthar and we’ll see.

Will the January transfer market be useful for this match-up?
We have to finish this year as we have important matches in the league. Then we have to work together to find out if we need something. Today, the best reinforcements will be Schick, Emerson and Defrel’s recovery. We must not forget that the transfer market opens on 2 January and we will work together to see if we need something.
