Minutes after the Blues fell 3-0 to Roma in Italy, a loss that has left them second in the group table, their manager tried to explain what went wrong for them, talking to BT Sport.
When you concede three goals you must be worried because it means something doesn’t work. It’s very difficult now to tell what that is, but for sure we have to analyse the game. I think we needed to work on the tactical aspect
Antonio Conte said, referring to the same important detail that he has mentioned in several Press conferences of his since the start of the season.
For sure, in this season, we are working less on this aspect and we are paying in this situation
the Italian said, having pointed out several times before last night that playing twice a week leaves him with hardly any time to work on the ‘tactical aspect’.
I think we have to look at ourselves, our performance and to understand that tonight was a bad night for us. I hope, just one night, I hope. I work, I put pressure on myself to have only one night like this. We must work together and have this will together
Conte also said. A little later, talking in a news conference, he expanded a bit on what disappointed him the most.
I actually believe we played a good match in the first half, but were 2-0 down. What I’m most disappointed about was the performance in the second half when Roma had more hunger, more desire, more fight to beat us and clearly deserved this win
his comment was.
