Livorno coach Davide Nicola was impressed by AS Roma in Sunday's 2-0 reverse.

Nicola has insisted that his men were second best to the Giallorossi.

“Rome were superior to us,” he told Teleradiostereo. “We deserved to lose even though we played a very tidy game.

“In our squad there were 18 first-timers, and we paid for that lack of experience.

“Roma played a great game and I though [Coach Rudi] Garcia did a great job.

“De Rossi, Totti and Florenzi were also deadly.”
