Roma manager Daniele De Rossi urged his side to maintain the highest level of focus ahead of the upcoming first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals with Milan.

Following Roma’s victory in the Derby della Capitale, De Rossi made it a point to calm his men and readjust their focus ahead of Thursday night.

Knowing how important a win in the derby can be, De Rossi told Corriere dello Sport about how equally important it is to move past this weekend’s result.

“We must immediately think about Milan, because we know we can get a good result at San Siro and play to advance to the next round.”

“I want everyone to be at their best and focused on Thursday’s match, the derby is now behind us and we no longer have time to enjoy it,” he concluded.
