Belotti Euphoric Following Olimpico Ovation in Salzburg Win
Two quickfire goals put RB Salzburg to the sword at the Stadio Olimpico yesterday, as Roma overturned a one-goal deficit to qualify for the UEFA Europa League last 16 stage. A poacher’s finish by Andrea Belotti set things in motion for the Giallorossi before Paulo Dybala volleyed home the winner before half-time.
Speaking to the press in his post-match conference (via VoceGiallorossa), Belotti sounded ecstatic to have played a winning part in propelling Roma through to the next knockout round.
💬 “The MOTM is the whole team.”

“I think this is my best match at Roma so far, and I’m very happy because it’s a very important match. We had prepared well; qualification is well deserved and I think it showed on the pitch.”
Belotti was greeted with an ovation and a round of applause by the Roma faithful
“I didn’t expect it, hearing people screaming my name is something magical. I try to give my all, I always want to win. People understand this.”
Tammy Abraham poses a threat to the striker’s spot under Jose Mourinho, but Belotti is least bit worried.
“When I chose Roma, I knew this was the situation. I knew I was coming to a strong team and I wanted to get involved. Tammy is a really strong striker, my will has always been to improve myself. I want to give everything, the important thing is to always be ready because we all win together.”
