Roma

 has reached the semi-final of the Europa League after they had a 1-1 draw against

Ajax

. The first left 2-1 victory won the match on aggregate for them as they should be ready to face

Manchester United

in the next stage.

The captain,

Lorenzo Pellegrini

hails his teammates for knowing how to face up to difficult moments as he states they knew how great Ajax is.

“We knew that Ajax were a great team, but we proved that the growth process we’re on is continuing,”

Pellegrini told Sky Sport Italia.

“We are happy, but it’s important to keep our euphoria contained, because there’s a semi-final to play. This means so much because we are trying to become great, to build ourselves up and that is the motivation in every match.”

“We started well and created the first real chance, I slipped and couldn’t put enough power on the ball. This team knows how to face up to difficult moments and I want to give such a big round of applause to my teammates.

“If we want to achieve something great, we have to beat the best. We’ll enjoy this evening, but from tomorrow start focusing on the next test.”
