Alessandro Florenzi knows the ‘importance of derby clashes’ and insists he doesn’t think about his future.
The Italian right-back joined the Ligue 1 giants on loan from Roma in the summer.
“I don’t think about the future, I think about playing and giving my all for this jersey. I want to give everything I can for this club that trusts me. Later we will see what happens, I only think about tomorrow’s game,” Florenzi said at a press conference.
“I’m doing very well, the team is a competitive team, we want to win all the matches, that’s what I like the most. I feel really great here, I have spent my whole life in Rome, it is a new experience here and I enjoy it every day.”
The Ligue 1 giants face Marseille away this evening.
“It will necessarily be a difficult match, as always in the classics, we will have to be at our best. We want to win, for the title race, for the rivalry, and for the supporters,” the 29-year-old said.
“I am a player who knows these meetings well, with Roma-Lazio and I know what can happen if we beat Marseille.
“The players told me about this game, which is a special game for everyone here. I feel that the players are very motivated by the idea of playing this match, they explained to me a lot what this match represented. There was the first leg, then the Champions Trophy, now it’s the return leg, we hope to play a big game and win. “
“I think we will tackle it like any other match. We are going to give ourselves 1000% as always. I think we are the best team in the championship but we have to confirm that on the pitch every day, and we will want to do that tomorrow too of course.”
