'Fan absence weighs heavily'

Alessandro Florenzi has admitted that playing with very few fans is a hindrance to Roma, despite beating Sampdoria 3-0.

The Giallorossi eased to victory against the Bluerchiati on Sunday, but had to do so with both Curvas closed following anti-Neapolitan chanting.

And the midfielder has conceded that despite the three points, it was tough without the supporters.

“I think we’re a good team,” he told reporters. “We’ve seen in difficult times that we step up, and that’s what we want to keep on doing until the end of the season.

“The team is scoring a lot of goals – we’re confident whenever we get in good shooting positions.

“We did well against Sampdoria. They’re not easy but we produced a good performance.

“The absence of the fans though, really weighs heavily on us.”
