Manolas speaks out after Plzen loss


Kostas Manolas to Roma TV after Viktoria Plzen 2-1 Roma:

What did not work today?
We conceded two goals — they’re not a big team, I do not like conceding in the Champions League.

It was not an important match for qualification, but it is a missed opportunity.
No, it wasn’t in terms of qualifying, but we entered the pitch to win today.

What is missing?
I do not know, I see a team that knows what to do in training but then we don’t manage to do so on the pitch. We lack courage, we must have more personality.

Sunday there is Genoa.
It’s a very important match, it’s very delicate — we just have to win. We have to enter with the mindset that we must grab all three of these fundamental points.
