Seydou Keita released an interview to rfi.fr. Below the most important part of this interview:
About Rudi Garcia…
“He had a great season last year, his team expressed a good way to play. It is always difficult to speak about my own coach so I do not dwell too much on him, but for me he is a very good coach.”
Gervinho and Benatia?
“There is a lot of respect between us.”
Valencia and Roma…
In March, Roma made me an offer. This is my chance to show that, despite my age, I still have many things to show to the people. Obviously, I want to play and if I will deserve it I will do that. If someone is better than me I will sit on the bench. It has never been a problem for me. This is the rule of the game.”
About the national team…
“I will always do my best for my national team. When you play in an important club who plays in the Champions League you have to be ready to play for your national team as well. You have to be ready to help your country. You can change your club but not your country. I’m very proud to be able to wear Mali’s jersey.”
Do you fell pressure in playing with Roma?
“With all that I won I have no pressure at all. I play soccer because I like it. I’m not going to leave soccer and we will see at the end of the season. Who knows what awaits us in nine months.”
