De Sanctis speaks after Carpi success

Morgan De Sanctis to SportMediaset Premium after Roma’s 5-1 victory over Carpi:

“The whistles at me? It hasn’t been an ideal week for me to do what I’m usually able to do, training and preparing, but that’s football. Especially in places like Rome and Napoli, where I’ve played the last 7-8 years, the fans expect so much, but they must understand that only through balance in their judgments and with passion is the only way we can improve: we’re trying to transform into a winner. They must understand that our effort needs to be accompanied by their enthusiasm.”
