Zeman insisted this was not the real Roma and his concept of football has not yet been seen.
â€śAre my ideas old-fashioned? When I see the team play with my ideas, then I can give a judgement, but tonight I saw very little of what we do in training. Maybe Juventus were so scary that we were unable to express our ideas.â€ť
The tactician was asked whether he mightâ€™ve preferred to stay with Pescara, who he took to promotion, rather than take on the pressure of this job.
â€śI am happy to be at Roma and convinced the team will be able to express itself. Naturally games like this can help us to learn and I hope the players realise they didnâ€™t do enough tonight.
â€śWe never won a challenge and if you go into a game with Juve lacking determination, then youâ€™ll get nowhere.
â€śWe were certainly sluggish and that is one of the reasons why we canâ€™t create a chance with speed. I knew Juventus were at a more advanced stage, as they know each other well, while we are a work in progress.â€ť
