Mancini accepts Roma defeat

Inter manager Roberto Mancini spoke with this morning after his team lost in the capital 4-2 yesterday evening:

“I would rather be here with some points instead of a defeat but we also must accept defeats, the difficult moments, knowing that we must start from here. The Scudetto? It will be a fight between Roma and Juventus but I don’t know who will win. Roma play well, (with) technical players, quality, Juve is solid. It will be a good fight.”
