Roma legend Francesco Totti attended the Champions League draw event in Nyon. His presence was positive for his beloved team. Shakhtar Donetsk will face the Lupi.
Right at the end of the event, Totti released an interview. The director believes that today’s draw is positive but this match must be prepared well because the Ukranian club is a tough side.
“I can say that we could have picked worse clubs but Shakhtar is physical side and technically a good team. It will be a tough match but open to any results.
The Ukrainian league stops for a while and this could be an advantage for us. However, we’ll think about this challenge in February. The qualification would be important for us.
The Champions League is important but the Serie A is our priority. We know that there are clubs more equipped than us on the international stage. But football is great because a team can become a possible surprise. We will put in trouble our opponents.
Roma gives me harmony. When the squad performs well the management is fine too. Our staff makes me feel comfortable and I am trying to do the same with them.”
