Cagliari boss Massimo Ficcadenti was thrilled with their opening day win at AS Roma.

Ficcadenti was drafted in by Cagliari to replace Roberto Donadoni over the summer.

"I'm delighted, but we are just at the first day. There will be difficulties ahead, but in the meantime, we have to enjoy these three points, whilst also thinking about the next game," Ficcadenti commented after the game.

"This is a good team composed of excellent players. It also has the advantage of several players that have played together for years. For a Coach it is certainly easier to be in this situation, than to have to rebuild.

"In short, I only have to improve the mechanisms."
