Nainggolan: “Fatigue is an easy excuse…”

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan gave a few comments after Roma’s 2-0 defeat to Napoli earlier this afternoon.

“I think we started very badly, then in the second half we improved but it was not enough, the few chances we had we did not take advantage of. Bayern Munich? I expect a tough match, we will try to do our best with confidence and we just want to go back to being the same old Roma. ”

“Did the atmosphere affect us? No, I don’t think it had anything to do with our performance. We didn’t start playing our game immediately and the Roma that we usually see didn’t show up today. After an hour of their strong pressing we tried to play our game but it didn’t really come right. The few chances we had we wasted.”

“Roma in crisis? No, no, Napoli was much more practical than we were and we now have to roll up our sleeves and work harder to return to the team that we were. Fatigue? Fatigue is always the easiest excuse after you lose but today we just did not play our game. Napoli were very good defensively today and hard to break down.”
