Paredes on Roma growth

Speaking in a press conference via TMW, Paredes first discussed his and Roma’s growth under De Rossi.

“The general growth, not only mine but also that of the team, is due to the enthusiasm that the coach brought us. Furthermore, his style of play suits the team better and this has made us grow.”

He commented on how it felt to work with the 2006 World Cup winner.

“For me he was already a coach when we played together. I have always been close to him, he has always treated me well. Having him as a coach is a pleasure and an honour. I hope to continue working well for him and for the team.”

Finally, Paredes discussed the importance of experience ahead of the Europa League semi-final clash with Bayer Leverkusen.

“Anyway, when you get used to these levels, you want to stay there. Playing this match will be very nice, we hope to do very, very well because to win you have to play at 100%.”
