Over 1,000 fans attend Roma training ahead of derby

Over 1,000 fans attended Roma training on Friday ahead of Sunday's derby against Lazio.

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca admits he welcomed the positive support.

“I am happy to see the support of our fans, as that is so important for us. They have supported us constantly and we must fight to give them a good game to celebrate," said the coach in his press conference.

“The good news is that we have Diego Perotti and Javier Pastore back in the squad. They aren't ready to start, but will be on the bench."

Fonseca continued: “We'll see who plays between Leonardo Spinazzola, Aleksandar Kolarov and Davide Santon. I can also say that Justin Kluivert hasn't trained very much and was very tired against Juventus midweek, so he had to play because we had no other options. I think tomorrow we'll see a different Kluivert."
