President has faith in Roma ahead of derby

Roma president Rosella Sensi has urged the fans to be patient despite the team's dismal start to the campaign.

The Giallorossi are hovering above the relegation zone in Italy's Serie A having won two and lost six of their 10 matches.

But Sensi has backed her team ahead of Sunday's city derby against Lazio.

"Despite the adversities we have faced at the start of this campaign, we cannot arrive to rushed conclusions," said Sensi.

"If the team was considered among the best in terms of performances several months ago, I don't understand how that can suddenly be forgotten.

"We cannot lose track of the team's achievements in the past.

"Roma have achieved success at national and international level, winning their ninth Coppa Italia last season as well as the Italian Supercup."

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti also guided the team to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and a runners-up finish in Serie A last season.

However, Sunday's 1-1 draw at Bologna, which earned Roma their first point in five league games, has left Spalletti on thin ice heading into this weekend's big match at the Stadio Olimpico.
