El Shaarawy: 'Roma heart'

Stephan El Shaarawy said Roma “earned the win with heart and pride” away to Sassuolo after his second goal in two games.

Mohamed Salah had opened the scoring, then after Domenico Berardi missed a late penalty, El Shaarawy turned in Diego Perotti’s assist to secure the 2-0 result.

“We suffered for this victory, but in the right way. It was a result earned with heart and pride, so we are happy,” the Little Pharaoh told Mediaset Premium.

“The squad was already strong, Perotti and I came here to give a hand and turn the campaign around. The Coach asked us to bring home the three points and we did it with determination.

“I dedicate this goal to my brother, who came to the stadium to see me, but also to my parents.

“This is a great sign for me, because I went through difficult moments, but always gave my best to overcome them.”
