The Italian midfielder spoke about the Derby della Capitale with the official Radio channel of the club.
This is the moment to be celebrated after an amazing performance. But Lorenzo Pellegrini knows the 2018-19 campaign is still very long and Roma must go ahead on this positive path.
“Although we have won two matches the championship is not over. We will face many other games and we must demonstrate what we have shown in the past two weeks,” said Pellegrini.
The midfielder started the match from the bench but Di Francesco told him to get ready to replace De Rossi or Pastore.
“There was not much time to think or to warm up. The coach had already told me that I probably would have entered. There were these two possibilities. Perhaps this helps you mentally prepare the game. I immediately felt good. It is difficult and complicated. There are many people at the stadium and then we know that the derby is special for us Romanisti, even for how our family lives it, and for many other things.”
In this Derby della Capitale, Pellegrini may have unleashed his potential.
The Italy international likes to play as trequartista because “You are freer in the offensive phase knowing that two teammates can cover you if needed.“
