Santon: “Our mentality has to change. We have chance to make up for the loss against SPAL”.


Davide Santon to Roma TV before Roma-CSKA Moscow:

This match fits nicely after the defeat against SPAL because it’s an immediate chance to play again.

When you’re coming off a bad loss, playing as soon as possible is very important to be able to redeem yourself. Of course, we know that the match we lost against SPAL was a tough blow, but tonight we have the opportunity to make up for it.

What has to change?
Undoubtedly the mentality is the most important thing, but our biggest sin is not being able to come back in a match when we go behind, we lack the strength. This is fundamental.

What attitude do you expect from CSKA?
We’ve watch a lot of video of them, they play the ball well, they were playing in Real Madrid’s half of the pitch often. They’re quick on set pieces so we’ll have to be careful.
