Roma boss Fonseca dismisses Nainggolan claims

Paulo Fonseca insists Roma's players should be able to handle the club's pressure.

Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan has stated players at Roma struggle to live with the pressure.

But Fonseca says: “Who wouldn't want to live with this pressure? Who cannot deal with it cannot be a professional football player. I see the support of the fans who believe in us, who create a wonderful atmosphere both at home and away.

“Pressure is everywhere, especially at a club that wants to win. If you are not able to deal with the pressure, you should go and plant potatoes in a field instead. This pressure exists in football and you have to accept it."
