Stramaccioni: Roma deserve to be in final

Andrea Stramaccioni believes Roma deserved to reach the Coppa Italia final after their 5-3 aggregate win over Inter.

A double from former Nerazzurri forward Mattia Destro secured Roma a derby date with Lazio in the final after Jonathan’s exquisite opener.

And though Stramaccioni was quick to praise his side’s commitment, he believes the Giallorossi were good value for their aggregate victory.

“I can only compliment my players, as we put everything we had on to the field,” the Inter coach said after the match.

“I think the team had an excellent first half and we could’ve doubled our lead with Tommaso Rocchi. In the second half Roma improved, while we lost physical intensity.

“The regret is we conceded a goal on a counter-attack when our defence was set out. The Giallorossi did well to take advantage.

“I don’t want to talk about myself, as I want to discuss the players. It’s a bit of a difficult period, as we got Ricky Alvarez and Juan Jesus back for this game, then lost Esteban Cambiasso in the warm-up.

“I will say over the two legs that Roma deserved to reach the final, so I compliment them and also compliment my players for giving their all. I thank the fans, who understood the situation and supported us to the end.”
