AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman is confident fans won't abandon them after their derby defeat to Lazio.

Zeman has never had a good record in derbies and lost last night's 3-2.

"Roma fans have always been close to Roma and suffered defeats, but remained attached to the club. Of course nobody is going to be happy with losing the derby, but it's not as if they are going to become supporters of Lazio or any other club. I hope their bad mood will only last a week."
