Arriving from Real Madrid in La Roma in the last hours of the summer mercato this summer, Borja Mayoral had until now only had the chance to play six short minutes in Serie A. But on Thursday night things changed. Having made his first start of the season, the Spanish striker showed his coach that he was wrong to do without him previously.
Although AS Roma had no problems in the 5-0 win, his Real-trained centre-forward found the net twice. A first real match and a performance that the double scorer of the evening did not fail to comment on at the end of the game on Roma TV.

“It was the night I was dreaming of, my first two goals with this jersey at the Olimpico. I am also very happy with the performance of the whole team. Ever since I spoke to the coach, I immediately felt his confidence, even before I got here. It’s clear that I need time to adapt to a new system of play, a new league and a new country, but I still feel the confidence of the coach and my team-mates,” concluded the man who launched his season on Thursday evening against CFR Cluj in the Europa League.
