AS Roma boss Luis Enrique admits concern over his players' self-belief after their draw with Siena last night.

After the 1-1 draw with Siena, the Spanish tactician stayed in the locker room for some time for a meeting with the squad and director of sport Walter Sabatini.

“My conclusions cannot be positive,” confessed Enrique. “I think the team did everything we expected, but we don’t risk going for goal. We cannot finish moves with as many players as I’d like.

“Siena had an interesting second half performance, while we had problems moving the ball around and getting into the box.

“I am worried by the entire situation, but above all the lack of self-belief in the players that can only increase as results don’t come. We were frightened and that is normal, because we still haven’t had our first win. This is a situation that has to be improved.”
