Tiger Fight, October 14th. Today, Rome held the first press conference for the two new players after joining. Mayoral said in an interview that Real Madrid did not want to let him leave, but joining Rome is an opportunity he cannot miss. At the same time, the Spanish forward also believes that he and Zheke will be in a healthy competitive relationship.
The Mayoral part of the Rome new aid conference:
I am very proud to be able to attend the new aid launch with Smalling and Mayoral today. These two players come from two very important clubs in the world. They chose Rome out of their own wishes, especially It was Borja, Real Madrid insisted on keeping him, but the player's personal strong desire finally made the transfer possible. Smalling and Mayoral are two motivated boys who will help Roma achieve those ambitious goals. They will be an important pillar of the team's future plans.
First of all I want to thank Feenga (CEO of Rome) and the club for giving me the opportunity to sit here today. I am very eager to join Roma. Although the transfer is a bit late, the important thing is that I am here. During the transfer period, my agent told me the attention from Roma and other teams. Roma was particularly interesting to me. They attracted me and convinced me almost immediately. Real Madrid had hoped that I could stay, but in the end they let me go. In addition, the telephone exchanges between Feenga and the coach were also decisive. Finally, I am very grateful to Real Madrid for their support of the transfer, which allows me to chase the path I want to take.
I think I am still a young striker. Although I have a lot of experience in La Liga matches, I am still full of strong desire and hunger. I think I am a forward who is good at scoring points in the penalty area, can also be pulled out of activities, and can assist teammates. All in all, I am good at working closely with my teammates, so with these technical characteristics, I consider myself a modern striker.
It is definitely the starting point for me. I am very satisfied with my choice after only about ten days here. I am very happy with the club and my teammates and get along well with everyone. I now consider myself more of a Roma player than a Real Madrid player, because I want to play here for two years, and Roma has a buyout clause for two years.
Yes, why not? As a player, I know Dzeko very well. He has many different characteristics from me, so why not? I think having two strikers with different technical characteristics will be very beneficial to the coach, and we also have complementary places.
Yes, like I said before. At the beginning of this summer, I immediately expressed my desire to leave to the club. Later, I talked to coach Zidane. He wanted me to stay, so I stayed for a while. Later, my desire to leave the team became stronger, because I felt that I could get more playing time and grow by leaving. Maybe the club wants to meet Zidane’s request and wants to keep me. Maybe they think it’s more appropriate to let Jovic go, but in the end my transfer was completed. I went to Zidane’s office to explain to him. , Because I can't let go of the opportunity to join Roma, which is very important for my future football career.
I don't consider myself to be Dzeko's substitute. We are two different forwards. I came here with a strong desire to help Roma achieve their goals and help the team. Of course I also want to learn from a forward like Dzeko when I come to Rome. He is a great player with rich experience, but I believe that there will be a healthy competitive relationship between us.
