Roma coach Fonseca: I still believe in this team

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca says his players haven't lost his confidence despite their form slump.

Ahead of their Europa League tie with Gent, Roma have lost three consecutive games to Sassuolo, Bologna and Atalanta in Serie A.

"I'm only worried about what we need to do to win the game. We've had a good week," said Fonseca.

“There are signals from the team that we can do well."

There has been speculation of a rift in the Roma locker room, but Fonseca downplayed any issues.

“The relationship between me and the squad is very good, as always. It is easy to invent issues in the changing room, like now. We are here to work honestly with no intention of hiding anything.

“It's not fair to invent these things."
