At 11.45 CET, Roma took off from Porto to return to the capital after the KO against Porto. According to Corriere dello Sport, the team was greeted by around 15-20 fans at the Portuguese airport. Reportedly the group of supporters told sporting director Ramon Monchi: “You have to go, you’ve broken up the team”. After a moment of silence, the Spaniard muttered back, “You’re all better (than this). In six months, I’ll take on each of you one on one”.
