Daniele de Rossi admits he feels like an "old man" being part of the current AS Roma squad.

The Giallorossi have been a revelation this season.

"I am starting to play the part of the old man who wants to rest," he smiled on Roma Channel.

"We have young, strong and exuberant players who really have fun. They keep pushing even when they ought to take their time and control. It's better like this than when you play alongside someone who just stands there.

"We are clearly stronger than Milan. They covered themselves well, but we saw our patience to wait for the right moment and break them down."
