AS Roma sports chief Walter Sabatini says they stand by coach Zdenek Zeman after yesterday's thrashing by Juventus.

Sabatini was asked whether Roma's hierarchy now felt sorry they had picked Zeman rather than Vincenzo Montella this summer.

"Montella? No, of course we don't feel regret. Montella is doing great things at Fiorentina and we are pleased for him, but Zeman is our Coach and we will all work together to do better as time goes on."
