Speaking after full-time, Roma manager Paulo Fonseca wasn’t willing to blame his team’s attitude today in their 3-2 loss to Cagliari.
The league defeat to the Sardinians was the tenth of the season for the Giallorossi, their most since 2012/2013.
“Today wasn’t an attitude issue, we didn’t show any fight against Torino, but that wasn’t the case this evening,” Fonseca claimed to Sky Sport.
“We tried to put them in trouble and they ended up scoring two goals from our mistakes. But if we’re comparing this to the match against Torino, the team showed a better attitude.”
He continued, “Now we have an important semi-final coming against Manchester United. I have to be focused on my job and this match, I can’t worry about the scrutiny from others. Because of this line of work, I will always be under scrutiny.”
