Luis Enrique has faith in Roma

Roma Coach Luis Enrique insists his outfit are on the right path despite a recent slump in results.

The Giallorossi have lost three of their last four games in the top flight and currently find themselves just four points above the drop zone.

"I'm convinced that if we can move forward then we will win," the former Barcelona B boss stated on Friday.

"I'm not a Martian who has fallen from outer space. I don't want to create a new and diverse brand of football.

"I see a lot of teams who play offensive football, not necessarily in the way I see it, but I'm not asking my team to do anything incredible."

The capital outfit have shown an ability to maintain possession, but they've picked up successive losses against Genoa and Milan.

"I've never seen my team inferior to any of our opponents so far," the Spaniard added. "Obviously if we don't cut out errors and don't improve our concentration then we'll stay away from the top.

"However, I have seen this week that my players want to change this difficult situation which we find ourselves in.

"We have to win back the faith in ourselves and work harder because we haven't done enough to win the games we wanted to."

Roma are next in action on Saturday night when they take on Novara and their artificial surface at the Stadio Piola.

"The pitch shouldn't be a problem," he added. "All the teams will have to go and play there and it shouldn't be an excuse.

"Novara play good stuff and they are a team who have beaten Inter this season. They could cause us problems at home.

"We'll go there to do what we have to do, to play our brand of football."
