Montella: 'Vucinic under stress'

Vincenzo Montella's Roma fell to their second consecutive defeat and “it's obvious Mirko Vucinic is under stress.”

The Giallorossi were beaten 1-0 on home turf by Inter in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg.

Dejan Stankovic got the winner, but in the opening minutes Vucinic missed an open goal – something he also did in the 3-2 loss to Palermo.

“When things like that happen and you miss really easy goals, it's difficult to say anything,” noted former striker Montella.

“Mirko did some good things and other less good things, but it's obvious he is under stress during this time.

“As for the team performance, people only tend to judge the result, whereas the difference can be made in a single incident.”
