Kolarov: 'Bologna deserved win'

Aleksandar Kolarov admits “Bologna deserved to win” and there are “many elements” to the current negative Roma spell.

The Giallorossi have one point from their last four home matches and were beaten 3-2 at the Olimpico this evening.

“We lost a game, Bologna deserved to win, that is all,” Kolarov told Sky Sport Italia.

“Our 2020 has not started well, but these periods can happen during a season. All we can do is keep our heads down and work harder.

“We knew Bologna were tough to beat and dangerous on the counter-attack. Our pressing was not good enough and that left us flat-footed on the counter. Bologna absolutely deserved to win and we did not perform up to our standards today. We did better after the break, but it was not enough.

“There are many elements to the negative period, but as the oldest of the group, I stay close to my friends, we discussed it, know what we need to do and keep going forward.”

There seemed to be a moment when Kolarov was heckled by the fans, turned to say something to them, after which his every touch was jeered. What happened?

“No, nothing in it,” he insisted
