The Giallorossi coach then gives some other tactical indication about the race: " We had a problem with Zappacosta and I entered Kluivert. The pressing was not always effective, it is difficult against a team that defends to three, they have created so many difficulties on the left ". Paulo Fonseca then tells how he lived his debut in the Roman city : “ It was a spectacular derby, for us technicians it is not easy to manage all these emotions, we leave a few years of life on the pitch ".

Finally the Portuguese sees the glass half full after the 3-3 of a week ago with Genoa: " We have improved the defensive rally, the team has been more compact, but we have lowered ourselves too much and instead we had to better manage the possession. Today we tried to correct something, as the Italian championship demands, which is very demanding ".
