Renato Sanches had a hell of a performance tonight for Roma, scoring a beautiful header in the first half against empoli.
In his post-match reaction with DAZN, Sanches said, “It’s a really special moment for me, it’s my first game as a starter. I came back from an injury, I’m really happy. I can play in many positions. I need to play to do my best. The injury is behind me and I want to do my best for the team. Being here is exciting. The best is yet to come. If I’m well I can have a good season. I feel happy here, there are great fans cheering us on.”
The Portuguese international can be a key player for Roma going forward. Mourinho took him out of the match at half-time to ensure he is ready for Roma's next match.
