Roma defender Mancini: Our fans deserve an apology

Roma defender Gianluca Mancini says the fans deserve an apology for the past week.

After their 6-2 thrashing at Europa League opponents Roma, they also lost on Sunday to Sampdoria.

“It's clear that this is a difficult moment. The defeat against Manchester United affected us, and we could not react," the defender told Sky Italia.

“We deserved to lose and we must apologise to our fans. We have to remain quiet and try to find an escape route from this bad moment to end the season in the best possible way.

“It's a problem when you are missing many quality players in a difficult league like the Serie A. However, we deserve this position in the table. We must only remain quiet."
