AS Roma coach Luis Enrique was proud of his players after their draw with Napoli.

Fabio Simplicio snatched a late 2-2 draw amid protests at the Olimpico and their hopes of capturing a Champions League place have evaporated.

“The first half was sparkling, in the second it was difficult partly down to Napoli’s performance,” said the Coach.

“I do not have a definitive position on my future. As far as I am concerned, Roma’s future is the next game with Chievo and I will be here at least until the end of the season. We’ll talk it over, so the club and I will decide my future at the end of the season.

“We have put in some performances that weren’t up to the task, but football is like that and we had a great first half. The second had a psychological block, which was natural in the current situation.

“I want to praise everyone today, even those who did not play, because we proved we are a real team. It’s a shame we didn’t get the victory, but a point each is the right result.

“It often happens that we give the ball away in a naive manner and that becomes dangerous, as we have so many players in front of the ball.”
