(Post-match) Dzeko: “Tonight wasn’t easy. We hope the fans will give us a hand on Tuesday”.


Edin Dzeko to Sky Sport after scoring in Chievo 0-3 Roma:

“It’s difficult for us to have a simple evening. Even today in the first half it was not calm despite us being up two goals. I don’t know why but sometimes we turn off. Even though it was offsides, Mirante made a great save for us”.

You’ve reacted well since the nightmare against Fiorentina.
Yes, after a bad performance like that. Against Milan, we showed that we are strong and can be compact — we were only lacking a second goal. Today we had our way even if it’s never easy to win away from home in Serie A.

The race for the fourth place is crowded.
It’s always like this, maybe this year there are more teams but we have to worry about ourselves and win. If we do not win, it is useless to look at others.

How has the relationship with the supporters recovered?
Just like the fans, we’re unhappy after a poor performance. First of all, the fans are our 12th man – we need them and we hope that by Tuesday they will come back and give everything they’ve got in order to give us a hand.
