AS Roma defender Nicolas Burdisso was disappointed with the dismissal of coach Zdenek Zeman.

Burdisso says the players were partly to blame for Zeman's demise.

"When you have had a season like we have, it is not only the Coach who is to blame," he told Roma Channel.

"We put a lot of desire and commitment into the Coach, and up until his final game we were convinced that it could work.

"However, we got the results we deserved and it did not happen."
