Fonseca: It’s tough to win matches in Italy. What matters is your attitude

Marco Iacobucci Epp /

Fonseca spoke to the press ahead of Roma-Lazio. He has confidence in all of his players but he is also worried about the many injuries.

Just a few more hours before the Derby della Capitale begins! Roma will face Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday at 12:00 PM-EST.

Although Roma’s coach won’t have Diawara and many other players available, Perotti and Pastore are back into the group and will sit on the bench tomorrow.

“Perotti and Pastore are not fit to start the match but they will be on the bench which is good news for us. The team is fine, they are motivated and confident. We can play a good match,” Fonseca said in the press conference today.

He wants to see real ambition and motivation from his men. The group is ready to face a solid side. Inzaghi‘s team scored 2 goals per match in their last 6 away Serie A clashes.

“I have to say that my intention is always the same. I play to win. Here in Italy, it is always difficult to win, whether you are playing Spal or Juventus. The most important thing is to have ambition, courage, and always play to win,” Roma‘s head coach said to the press ahead of Roma-Lazio.

The Portuguese coach believes his side had the right courage even when they lost against Juventus. “We may have lost but our identity was clear to see. We played, attacked, and created chances against Juventus. That’s the most important thing for me.”
