Roma goalscorer Bryan Cristante: We'll improve the more we play together

AS Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante says they'll improve as the new players bed down.

Former Atalanta star Cristante scored during Roma's 4-2 victory over Barca in the International Champions Cup.

Barcelona are a team who always put their opponents under difficulty," he said after the game.

“Once we understood how to move and find the distances. we were the ones who put them under difficulty.

“Are the team improving with their movements? Yes, we've just started out and being a team with so many new players, we're starting to get to know each other. Everything will be better in time.

“Man of the match? It was a friendly but it's still nice to be nominated as the best player on the pitch against a team like Barcelona.

“The important thing is that we're starting to move better and play more smoothly. We need to become familiar with each other and understand what the Coach wants. Everyone has their own style of play.

“My inclusion in the team is going well, but we're at the start of the season and this was their first friendly.

“Once the campaign starts, both the team and I will be more ready. As a mezz'ala, I feel good and I'm doing what the Coach asks of me."
