Nicola Zalewski: Roma deserved to win Europa Conference League final

Nicola Zalewski was thrilled to help Roma win the Europa Conference League final.

The youngster started in Tirana against Feyenoord.

“To be honest, I tried to think about it as little as possible. The emotions were still there, I won't deny it, in the end all the thoughts were positive and they repaid all the work we've done this season. I think we deserved it," Zalewski told Sky Italia.

“If I got the ball and played with my head down, I wouldn't be doing what the coach asks. He wants me to run at opponents and keep my head up, look for the pass. I know I still need to improve defensively, but I'm working on it.

“The coach simply told me that my opportunity would come and I had to make the most of it, so that's what I did. I think we all deserved this trophy."
