Roma coach Fonseca on victory over Young Boys: I knew we'd fight back

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca was pleased with their 2-1 Europa League win at Young Boys.

The visitors had been trailing 1-0 at the break, but substitutions inspired a comeback to win 2-1 in Berne with goals from Bruno Peres and Marash Kumbulla.

“The important thing is to have faith in all your players," Fonseca told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was not an easy game, as let's not forget that even Juventus lost here a few years ago and Young Boys won 15 home matches in a row. It was important to get the win and we did well.

“There's still a long way to go in the group and the season. We rested a few players and can now focus on Milan in Serie A.

“I am glad that those who hadn't played for a while gave such a good response when called upon. It's very pleasing."
