With the Rome derby looming, Petkovic feels his players weren't on the case.
âI consider myself the first person responsible for this defeat,â said the Coach. âUp until the first goal we werenât doing too badly, but our attitude after the second was inexplicable.
âI just hope the derby was not already in the minds of my players. It is an important game, but itâs still a week away.
âI substituted Hernanes at half-time because he was not playing well. We kept up the tempo, but did not perform. Itâs a psychological issue.
âThe Rome derby is very important, but before that there is the Europa League.â
