CROTONE – Italy and Roma forward Stephan El Shaarawy reflected on a hard fought 2-0 win away in Calabria.
“It’s very pleasing, I’d gone a little while without a goal,” El Shaarawy told the club’s official media. “We have won at a difficult place to go and have shown we have consistency. We are happy with the result.
“It can happen that you go through a phase lacking a bit of sharpness. It’s important to keep plugging away, and in the end the goal arrived.
“When you believe in what you are doing, when you have focus and the right spirit then things generally go better. Today we had the right enthusiasm and aggression and brought home the win.”
Roma now are four points clear of Inter for 3rd place although the Nerazzurri have a game to play.
