ROME – "Mazzarri said I was one of the best on the pitch? I thank him for the comment. It’s a shame about the final result. We
deserved something better than this draw. We really did very well in the first
half and had some chances to score. The coach told us at various moments we
were playing a great match and we’d have to score as soon as possible. It’s a
pity we didn’t pull it off. Now we have to try right away to get ready for the
next game in the best way we can. We’ll work hard this week to show up on the
pitch in the next match in even better shape. Our opponents also did well
tonight. We also need to improve our final ball to help out our forwards,"
stated Jonathan to Inter Channel after this evening’s scoreless draw against
Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.
"Next Sunday we face Torino and we know it won’t be easy. They’re a solid team with good attacking players. We have to play the same way we did in tonight’s game and in Florence. When we play at the San Siro all the teams sit back and wait to counterattack against us. But we’re also expecting the support from our fans to help us play a strong match on Sunday. Perhaps we were a bit exposed at the back when Pjanic had his chance, but the only flaw we showed today was not being able to score. In my opinion we played a fantastic game, one of our best yet this season. Especially when you consider the quality of the opposition and the fact that we were in their house. We have to take the best things from tonight’s game and put them in action against Torino," concluded the Brazilian.
