Roma attacker Erik Lamela says his side have been left ‘angered’ by their 3-2 loss to Udinese in Serie A over the weekend.
The former River Plate man gave his side a commanding two-goal cushion in the first half but Udinese responded with a Maurizio Domizzi strike and a double from Antonio Di Natale after the interval to stun the capital outfit.
It was not the first time that Roma have thrown away winning positions this season, and Lamela admits that he is mystified by their tendency to leak goals.
“We are angry. I don’t understand the reasons for this defeat,” Lamela told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“In the future, we must continue to work with the right spirit. We are working hard in training during the week. It’s very strange that on the pitch we are not producing the right results.”
Lamela has been in strong form for his side this term, netting five goals.
The Argentine attributes his prowess up front to Roma coach Zdenek Zeman and his team-mates.
“Five goals? With Zeman as coach, I’m very happy with him and also my colleagues, who helped me score,” he said.
