Gerson said Roma are relishing their season so far. “We’re proving everyone wrong who said we’d go nowhere and we won’t stop now.”
The Giallorossi won their Champions League group ahead of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, are fourth in Serie A with a game in hand and host Torino in today’s Coppa Italia Round of 16 tie.
“We are proving everyone wrong who said Roma would go nowhere this season. We’ll continue surprising, because we won’t stop now,” the midfielder told Roma TV.
“We are working well and hope to achieve the victory today, seeing as the Coppa Italia is a target. If we remain concentrated with this hunger and desire, we can do well in every tournament.”
They scraped a last-gasp win over Cagliari in Serie A at the weekend thanks to Federico Fazio bundling over the line.
“It was very difficult, but then nobody can be expected to win 6-0 every game. What matters is the victory, not whether it’s 1-0 or with a goal from the defender or even the ‘keeper.”
