Manolas: “We must play our game.”

Kostas Manolas to Roma TV before Shakhtar-Roma:

Feelings before the match?
We have to enter the pitch with the conviction to play our game and in the end we will see what happens.

Have you studied your opponent?
We’ve studied them a lot, we know they’re a strong team but we have to play our game.

For a player of your experience, the Champions is a huge stage, does this matter?
Of course, these matches are the most beautiful to play, you must enter the pitch completely focused because with the slightest error you can concede goals.
