Claudio Ranieri was filled with reward for his former participant Daniele De Rossi after Cagliari capitulated 4-0 to Roma. ‘We by no means managed to get close to them.’
The Sardinians noticed their sport plan exit the window when Lorenzo Pellegrini turned in from shut vary on a nook after 61 seconds, the quickest purpose scored in Serie A thus far this season.
“Every thing went out the window,” confessed Ranieri on Sky Sport Italia.
“Plus Roma proved themselves to be a lot stronger than us, congratulations to them, so we should drag ourselves again onto our toes and present guts to struggle for our Serie A security.”
Paulo Dybala then discovered the online twice, together with a penalty, earlier than the towering Dean Huijsen header from one other nook.
“Now we have conceded plenty of objectives like this on corners, so tactical stability is a unique matter. If you find yourself 2-0 down, you need to attempt to get again into it, however we solely had one or two pictures on the right track. It’s not sufficient.
“There are causes to really feel hopeful. The lads at all times practice at excessive depth, Yerry Mina appears a participant who actually binds the defence collectively. We knew it might be powerful, however it’s harder than anticipated as a result of too typically we concede objectives which are our personal fault and that may be a downside.”
This was Cagliari’s third consecutive defeat, however after a run of fixtures towards Lazio, Udinese and Napoli, there’s a interval that might determine Serie A security.
In March, the Sardinians will play Empoli, Salernitana, Monza and Verona in a row.
“We should attempt to get factors towards Lazio and Napoli, we all know these can be very tough, however it’s essential to realize confidence too.”
Cagliari had turn out to be well-known for his or her comebacks and by no means giving up, so why was there no signal of that this night on the Stadio Olimpico?
“Roma deserve credit score, as their high quality was decisive, they repeatedly crossed from one flank to the opposite, moved the ball round shortly and we by no means managed to get close to them.”
Ranieri had confronted his former participant De Rossi as a coach as soon as earlier than, in Serie B for SPAL, however the heat hug on the touchline on the Olimpico felt very completely different. Is there any recommendation?
“He doesn’t want my recommendation! He took on a robust staff, is making them play good soccer, however the warm-up is completed now and he has to face stronger opponents than he’s met thus far. I want him all the very best.”
