Federico Fazio, on loan at Roma from Tottenham Hotspur, cannot agree with Giallorossi team-mate Wojciech Szczesny on the subject of the side's mentality.
Szczesny, who is himself on loan at Roma from Arsenal, was critical of the side's mentality after they suffered a 1-0 defeat away at title rivals Juventus earlier this month, losing vital ground at the top of Serie A in the process.
Centre-back Fazio however feels there is no issue with Roma's mentality and believes no change is needed, with the Giallorossi progressing well and much of the season still to go. And the defender pointed to Roma triumphing in games against other big teams in Serie A.
"Against Juventus we played very well", Fazio told Roma TV.
"We do not need to change anything, we have to continue like this. The championship is long and we are doing well", the Spurs contracted man continued.
"There are so many games, it depends only on us.
"We are not inferior to anyone.
"I do not think there is a problem of mentality. In the last ten to fifteeen games we have learned so much in this regard.
"The important games like against Inter, Milan, Napoli and Lazio were won thanks to our character.
"We have to continue to go like this, then go a step further – it depends only on us."
Roma currently sit second in the Serie A standings, behind leaders Juventus, who boast a four-point advantage over the Giallorossi and also have one game in hand.
Fazio joined Roma on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham in the summer.
