Roma defender Juan was delighted to grab his first goal in Sunday's victory over Reggina.

"It's good to open my account," he enthused. "I just went to the back post and the ball came over and I hit it. It reminded me of the goal I scored last year with Bayer against Stuttgart.

"It was an emotional moment because we needed a win and I made an important contribution. I want to thank my teammates who helped me to score and to Luciano Spalletti for his faith in me."
