“We did so badly in the first half,” said the French defender. “We were on home turf and needed at least a point, so we had nothing to lose.
“We should’ve pressured them higher up the field. It was very difficult after the 2-0, but we immediately got back into it after the restart with Borriello finishing off a great Jeremy Menez move.”
The turnaround was particularly impressive considering Totti, David Pizarro, Fabio Simplicio and Adriano were on the bench to begin with.
“Did you see our bench? With Francesco, Pizarro and the Brazilians there was so much talent there and with a squad like this, we could go far. Every player gives his all for the team.
“Nobody thought Leandro Greco or Simplicio could do so well, but we have real strength in depth.”
