Mihajlovic: “We Deserved To Lose”

Sampdoria manager Sinisa Mihajlovic was asked about his team’s performance at the Stadio Olimpico and the Serbian manager admitted “we deserved to lose”.

“We deserved to lose but we put a lot of it on ourselves, we have made ​​many mistakes in the match. We tried to play but Roma made a great game. We got it wrong on too many set-pieces, we chose the wrong solutions. On Sunday we will have two important players suspended, De Silvestri will be healthy. Our goal is salvation, today we were not able to do what ever we wanted for ourselves but also Roma was of great quality. Okaka? Physically he is 50%, today I decided to keep him on the bench for a technical choice because against Benatia and Castan, in my opinion, he would have problems. I thought it was best to use the speed of Eder.”
