Roma coach Di Francesco on Udinese win: Players now behind me

Roma coach Eusebio di Francesco feels he's silenced his doubters after victory over Udinese.

The 3-1 victory over Udinese was Roma's third consecutive Serie A win.

“What interests me, along with the victory, is giving people confidence in what I am proposing," said Di Francesco.

“I saw an excellent movement from the team. It's a shame we conceded that goal, and we could've scored a few more, but were not determined enough. I can't help but be satisfied with my team.

“It's too early to give a verdict, but there is more confidence and also more desire to do what I ask. There is the preparedness to make sacrifices in the two phases, such as from Edin and Radja Nainggolan. Stephan El Shaarawy is the ideal forward for my system."
