Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo, well known as Monchi, released an interview with Spanish outlet ‘ti’ right after Roma‘s marvelous win against Lazio at the Olimpico stadium.
The Spaniard spoke about his relationship with Roma legendary striker Francesco Totti and retraced some things he has done when he arrived in the Italian capital.
“We cannot be afraid of being ambitious. I am here to crown the main dream of our fans, the Scudetto. However, I am not only thinking about winning a title. Roma needs to compete for the trophy every season.
We decided to put a Roma soul on the team. Eusebio Di Francesco had already played here. Our team manager Morgan De Sanctis too. Then there’s Francesco Totti as a director, he is Roma!
When I told Totti that it was the moment to retire my legs were shaking. But I think he has appreciated that I was looking him in his eyes. It was important to start a professional project between us.”
