The Giallorossi boss believes his side's draw with Torino will go down as a positive after they failed to extend their 10-game run of wins
Alessio Cerci netted in the second half to cancel out Kevin Strootman’s opener as the capital side were held 1-1 in Turin, but the former Lille boss believes a point on their travels is a positive.
“This is football, we can’t win them all, but a draw away from home is not a negative result,” the Frenchman told reporters after the game.
“I liked that we played all the through in order to win. Even at the end we attacked to the final whistle and tried to get the victory.
“We must make the most of this point, as it is valuable, and be ready to win the next game at home to Sassuolo. I hope we can then break away from Juventus or Napoli, maybe even both.”
Daniele De Rossi echoed the sentiments of his coach, admitting that games will only get harder as teams try to find a way to stifle the Giallorossi’s potent threat.
“After such an extraordinary run it can happen to have a little slip-up and we felt tired towards the end, so weren’t as sharp as usual," he told Sky Sport Italia.
“It’s particularly disappointing considering we dominated the game. Torino just sat back and defended, but we’ve got to get used to that this season.”
Roma are still top if the Serie A table, three points clear of both Juventus and Napoli, who both play each other next weekend.
