Pjanic hails memorable week

The Bosnian celebrated in midweek as his side secured their place at next summer’s World Cup finals before scoring both goals in the Giallorossi’s win over Napoli on Friday

Miralem Pjanic is enjoying a “magic moment” after capping a memorable week with two goals for Roma against Napoli on Friday.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina midfielder was part of the national team’s success in qualifying for next year’s World Cup earlier in the week, and then rounded off a successful seven days with a double as Roma won their eighth Serie A match in a row with a 2-0 victory over second-placed Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico. 

Pjanic struck a sweet free-kick shortly before half-time before converting a controversial penalty in the second half, and the 23-year-old admitted he is currently relishing life under new boss Rudi Garcia as the Giallorossi continue to set the pace in the Italian top flight.

“It is a magic moment for me and I hope to continue like this,” Pjanic told Sky Sport Italia.

“Last season I trained well, yet I struggled to find playing time at the start.

“Every coach has his vision and in the end I worked hard to earn my space.”

Roma’s victory moved them five points clear at the top of Serie A, with Juventus able to close the gap back to two by beating Fiorentina on Sunday.
