Roma forward Juan Iturbe has insisted that he’s been working as hard as possible to overcome his struggles with form and injury problems in order to help the Lupi succeed.
The 21-year-old’s debut season with the Giallorossi has been quite inconsistent due to troubles with both his physical condition and mentality, which has drawn some criticism from the capital city club’s fans based on the amount of money he cost the Italian side, but he remains adamant that he will continue giving his all to the team as they try to end the campaign on a positive note.
Iturbe spoke to Mediaset Premium about his quest to return to top form and commented on Roma’s goals for the remainder of the season.
“My current physical condition? I didn’t have a good start to the season, but my injuries have helped make me even stronger,” said the Argentine.
“After the last setback I had worked even harder to stay healthy and available to coach Rudi Garcia and my teammates.
“The team is doing fine. Little by little we are starting to play like we did in the beginning of the season.
“We have had both good and bad games, but I think that this team is strong and can return to our previous form very soon.
“Our goals are to win every Serie A game until the end of the season and to go as far as we can in the Europa League.
“It’s a great competition with good teams that play just as well as us.”
