Monchi speaks ahead of Torino showdown


Monchi to Sky Sport before Torino-Roma:

Gonalons to Sevilla on a dry loan?
If all goes well, it will be dry loan, he is going today to Sevilla, tomorrow he will have the medical visits.

Pastore as mezz’ala?
Quality players play well everywhere. Javier has worked to get to the best condition possible, the Mister even worked with him on his mindset. He is convinced he can do it, he will have a good season in this role.

Is Olsen already commanding the new defence?
I think Olsen is a guy with a magnificent attitude, with the help of Savorani, he already has started to learn the words (in Italian) necessary for a goalkeeper. I think he’s ready.

Why did you choose Olsen?
Replacing Alisson is not easy, we are talking about one of the top 5 goalkeepers in the world. We looked for an experienced goalkeeper, we evaluated many possibilities. He is a guy with important experience, he played in a World Cup with the national team.
