"We showed that we're improving. This match should be a starting point," Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco said. "More than a consecration, it should provide us with the self-belief that we can play at this level."
"Patrik is one of the brightest prospects in international football," Roma sporting director Monchi said. "We are all very satisfied to agree this deal especially because, despite being chased by a number of clubs, he has chosen us."
