Roma defender Marash Kumbulla admitted that it’s been a difficult 72 hours for his team since their embarrassing Europa League defeat against Manchester United.

The Giallorossi were hammered 6-2 in England and enter this evening’s league match against Sampdoria sitting seventh in the Serie A table. Despite the grim position, the youngster insisted that his side are focused ahead of this evening’s affair and eager to get back to winning ways.

“It’s been a difficult past few days,” he admitted to Sky Sport.

“We’ll worry about the second leg after tonight, but we need to worry about Samp. We will always try to win each time we step on to the pitch.”

Before concluding, Kumbulla gave a saluted to Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini, who remained in Rome this evening to welcome the birth of his second son.

“I hope everything went well for Lorenzo and his family. He told us that he’ll be watching the match from Rome.”
