Roma coach Spalletti: Gloom has lifted

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti insists the gloom has lifted after last week's derby victory over Lazio.

Ahead of today's clash with Lecce, Spalletti said: "The worst has passed, now we must continue winning.

"Every match is very important for us and we need to carry on trying to get points every week to improve our position in the table, which at the moment does not reflect our real potential.

"I must compliment my players, as they remained united even in moments of real difficulty. I thank them, because with many of them I won 100 games on the Roma bench."

He added: "Winning the derby can completely change the psychological situation of the players, especially as the victory was fully deserved."
