(Pre-match) Manolas: “I feel really good. It’s important not to concede tonight”.

Kostas Manolas to Roma TV before the first leg of Roma-Porto:

How are you?
I feel really good, I’m ready for this battle.

It’s important not to concede tonight.
Very important, a goal away from home is worth a lot. We must try to be compact.

Porto are coming off two consecutive draws.
They’re strong — they’ve been playing in the Champions League for years. But we have experienced players too, we are ready.
