Gerson: “We must win against Torino.”


Roma midfielder Gerson spoke today to Sky Sport ahead of this weekend’s clash against Torino. These are his words:

What kind of match do you expect against Torino?
It will be a very difficult match. We have to be focused, we have worked very hard and we have to get the three points.

Why did you lose at the Olimpico against Torino in the Coppa Italia?
Football is like that, we lost because we made too many mistakes, this happens in football if you make a mistake too often. It’s in the past, we’ve changed our mindset, now we have to play differently than we did.



How do you judge your season?
I’m happy, but I know I can do even more for myself, for the team and for my family. I’m happy, but I know I have to do even more.

Do you think you are playing against Torino?
I do not know, I always train to the best of my ability, but the decision is up to the Mister, I must always be ready.

Where do you still have to improve?
I have to always improve, in football you must always be in a good condition. If you play well you’re very strong, if you make a mistake, they’ll kill you. But this is football. Us players are ready.

Is Alisson the best goalkeeper in the world?
In my opinion yes, he is very strong, I do not know what to say, he is a phenomenon.
