Roma boss Paulo Fonseca appeared on Sky Sport to discuss the Giallorossi’s 4-2 defeat against Sassuolo.
“First, I have to congratulate Sassuolo, who played well and won. The truth is that we didn’t play in the first half. It is impossible to win if we defend like that,” he said.
”It is sometimes difficult to explain this difference that we saw from the Derby to tonight. For a team that always aim to win, we can’t play the way we did in the first half”.
“Every time they attacked they scored. It’s difficult to explain the way we defended. We left too much space behind Cristante”.
“To me, this is a mental issue. To play like we did last week against Lazio compare to today? It can only be mental”.
