Monchi speaks ahead of Inter showdown


Monchi to Sky Sport before Roma-Inter:

How are you?
It is true that we are in a difficult moment with many injuries, but we have confidence in what will be on the pitch today. Football is like that, there are difficult times because injuries arrive. Those who have healed will play. I trust the 11 that will be on the pitch today.

Will you still trust in Di Francesco regardless of tonight?
The confidence in the manager is the same as when we brought him to Roma. Nothing has changed, he did very well last year, he finished third and took us to the Champions League semi-final. There is no singular responsibility, we always look ahead. We all want the results to come but the trust is always the same.

Spalletti won Roma’s last trophy, is it very difficult to win a title in Rome?
I do not know, maybe we do not have to wait but it’s true that it’s not easy. I hear and see the fans on the street. Today, I would be in trouble if I promised something, but my only goal is to work to win and, above all, make them happy. A club is its fans and more.
