Dzeko: 'Roma not that bad, eh?'

Edin Dzeko hit back at critics after Roma stunned leaders Napoli 4-2. “We aren’t so bad as people think. Some thought we’d lose 5-0.”

Lorenzo Insigne had opened the scoring at the Stadio San Paolo, but the Giallorossi turned it around, including with a Dzeko brace.

“We were perfect, but when we don’t win that doesn’t mean we are useless,” he told Mediaset Premium.

“We put in a great performance against the team that plays the best football in Italy. I do not look to the past, but I say we aren’t so bad as people think. Before kick-off, some thought we were meant to lose 5-0.

“The last few weeks have certainly not been easy, but I do not look for excuses. If I do well or not, I don’t seek excuses. I just want to work for the team.”
