Roma, Džeko: “Never seen Barcelona struggle so much”

Roma, Džeko: “Never seen Barcelona struggle so much”

Roma gunman Edin Džeko said that “the best is yet to come” after the Giallorossi beat Barcelona to reach the Champions League Semi-Finals.

The Bosnian International scored the opener last night as La Magica won 3-0 and progressed through on away goals after a 4-1 defeat at the Camp Nou last week.

Džeko spoke with Mediaset Premium after the game and was extremely happy.

“Now I can play the semi-final too! It wasn’t easy, but I stayed here and am very happy to be here. I think the club is glad too”.

Roma’s number 9 was asked how much money he rejected from Chelsea to stay in Rome.

“Let’s not talk about it. Money doesn’t matter.

“This was the best, but even better may well be yet to come. It proved we can play against anyone, as Barcelona are such a strong side. We put three goals past them and could’ve had more.

“I have never seen Barcelona struggle so much. We pressed them constantly from the first minute.

“It was easier for me to play when Schick and Radja were closer to me, as it created more space and stretched out their defence. It was the first time we played with three at the back and we did great. I was very happy with this system.

“We all believed, even if everyone else gave us a five per cent chance. We knew it’d be tough to win 3-0, but now we’ve done it in such a splendid way, I can safely say Roma are deservedly in the Champions League semi-final.

“Every time we’ve faced the big clubs, we have won or got a positive result. Perhaps it’s our fault, as when we are the favourites in a tie, we think for some reason it might be easy, but it never is easy”.

Džeko was then asked how far can Roma go in the Champions League this season.

“I hope to the Final! Nobody believed in us and we have reached the semi-final for the first time in the Champions League. I am very happy that I can watch the draw for the semi-finals and see my Roma there”.
