The captain of the giallorossi was recently interview by UEFA in reference to the upcoming Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk.
This is the moment in which the captain must lead his team on the International stage. Daniele De Rossi is finally recovered. Likely, the Roman gladiator will start the match tomorrow joining a rocky midfield line with Strootman and Nainggolan.
Daniele knows the importance of this Champions League match and the strength of the Ukrainian side. “They are a very tough side – said the Roma captain. Several years ago, they kicked out from the Champions League but now they are a completely different team. Anyway, they are still strong even if they changed almost every player”.
Once more, De Rossi explained his feelings when he wears the Roma jersey. “It is something special to me. It gives me shivers. It’s my armor albeit it doesn’t work all the time. It is a great responsibility”.
The match against Shakhtar is imminent and Daniele highlighted the qualities of the Ukrainian champions. “They are an incredible side. They always have the strength to restart a new cycle sending players and buying other great talents. But we know how to face them. It’s going to be a great challenge. Both teams want to get to the next round”.
