He noted that Roma did so well, adding that the Italian targeted the right areas.

He told reporters, “[That this was my last Champions League game] is a possibility and for that reason it hurts even more,” when asked if he thought he’d play in the competition again.

“It’s a very hurtful elimination because nobody expected it due to the lead we had.

“When you do things badly, make lots of mistakes and don’t adapt to the game, this is what happens.
