Douglas Maicon insisted the eight-point gap between Roma and Juventus “is all our own fault.”
The Bianconeri’s lead at the top of the Serie A table was cut to eight today, as the Giallorossi beat Parma 4-2  in a game rained off on February 2.
“Why is there such a big gap? It’s all our own fault,” Maicon told Roma Channel.
“We need to look at our own work. If we had done better, then we would’ve been closer to them right now.
“The important thing today was to win so we could leave Napoli and Fiorentina further behind. Now we need to recover as quickly as possible, because on Sunday there is Cagliari.
“We’ve got to fight to the very end.”
