De Rossi felt comfortable in Roma defence

AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi had no problem playing at centre-half for their draw with Juventus.

De Rossi was played at the back by coach Luis Enrique due to injury problems.

"I was helped by all of the side and Gabriel Heinze in particular," De Rossi said. "Playing in that role increased my responsibility.

"It's hard work, though, perhaps even harder than playing in midfield."
