Gianluca Mancini sounded confident in his team’s quality and ability despite the 4-2 defeat to Inter Milan.
The Roma defender stressed the importance of staying united and continuing on the path they are currently on with head coach Daniele De Rossi.
“Losing is not a good thing. When this happens, it’s natural to be angry.”
“But you should also remember that you played well against the team that everyone, including myself, thinks is the best in the league. We had a fantastic first half, and we must criticise ourselves for allowing ourselves to be caught out in the first part of the second half.”
“The coach is well prepared. He brought his ideas, and we were capable at understanding them and working with the appropriate mindset. Before De Rossi arrived, the results were not going well, so we knew we needed to give more.”
“Tonight, we worked on what he asked of us. The 4-2 scoreline is a little heavy. Inter played well. They didn’t steal anything, but a draw would have been fair. The performance should inspire us to keep going because the results will come.”
“We are people who care about Roma, who work hard in training and strive to win every game. Like we did tonight. We tried and it failed. This is the direction, and we will try to do better.”
