De Sanctis: Roma are in control of our own destiny

By Joe Avicolli

Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis has insisted that it’s fully up to the Lupi to decide whether they’ll be able to finish in second place or not.

The Giallorossi currently sit in second with 64 points, leaving them just one point ahead of rivals Lazio and five points ahead of Napoli, and the 38-year-old believes that the capital city club’s current mentality and cautious approach may be able to help them earn victories in their final four games of the season, starting with their battle against AC Milan on Saturday.

De Sanctis spoke to Rete Sport about Roma’s current situation in the Serie A and the threats presented by the Biancocelesti and the Partenopei, while also commenting on his team’s upcoming clash with the Rossoneri.

“We have been playing our matches more cautiously from a tactical aspect,” said the veteran goalkeeper.

“The setting of these games have also changed. We have the right mindset, in the sense of running back to defend more than before.

“We’ve changed the way we play, we’re less offensive minded but we had to start doing things differently as it was necessary for our success.

“There are four games left and we will do our best to continue to achieve positive results. If we need to play matches with more concentration on defense, then we will.

“What do I fear most about Lazio and Napoli? Until recently, we had depended on the results of other teams. However, now we are the masters of our own destiny again.

“We have to deliver an important performance in Milan. We must not think that Milan are lacking quality, because it’s not true.”
