Managers’ reaction

Andrea Sottil: “A fantastic game throughout. A wonderful performance by the lads this evening – it’s all down to them.

“In terms of levels of cohesion and taking the game to the opponent, we matched our second half against Salernitana. We faced a big test this evening and we showed great personality and courage. Not every team puts four past Roma.”

“While we’ve picked up ten points from five games I’ve got no set goals. We’re just trying to foster a good mentality here, first and foremost.”

Jose Mourinho: “It was a tough match, just as we knew the opposition were going to make it tough for us. In games like this, generally speaking you can’t let yourself go behind early. They know how to defend tight and compactly and do a good job of running down the clock. They have smart, physical players. If you go behind against them you are already in a lot of trouble.”

“Congratulations to them, though, it’s a great result for them. They played to their strengths and the game played out as they would have wanted. So well done, we’ll see them again this season at the Olimpico.”
