Montella admits Roma must win back fans trust

AS Roma need victory in the derby to win back the fans' trust, says coach Vincenzo Montella.

Roma suffered a meltdown at Champions League opponents Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek.

"This is an important derby for our position in the table and the same goes for Lazio," commented Montella, who is still unbeaten in Serie A since replacing Claudio Ranieri.

"For us, though, it is key because we need to win back our fans. The team understood the mistakes made in Donetsk and is in good shape."
