Pedro scores in Derby della Capitale as the third player to score for both sides.

Pedro

scored a very important goal in Derby Della Capitale and became the third player to score for both

Roma

and

Lazio

, and he has admitted that it was a different game for him.

The experienced winger was left out of

Mourinho’s

squad and left them but facing them as a Lazio player, he had more motivation than anyone and maybe happier than everyone with his side’s victory.

“I am very happy with this victory, it’s important for us and the fans, as we were coming off some games that hadn’t gone so well,”

Pedro told DAZN

.

“It was a special derby for me. We were very aggressive in the first half and had many scoring opportunities.”

Now the player who wasn’t even invited to Roma’s training in the preseason has become an important player at Lazio and says that he is happy at the club.

“I feel very happy at Lazio, I always said that, it’s like a big family. I really like Sarri’s idea of football, which is about the high press, playing the ball quickly and creating scoring opportunities.

“I realise very few players have scored for both teams in the derby, so I’m happy that it is historic and it was an important moment for my career.

“The Rome Derby is among the best in the world, because people in the city talk about it all week. They stop you in the street, remind you to do well, how important this game is for the city.

“It’s true I have played many derbies, but this is one of the best in the world for me.”
