Vermaelen: ‘Roma concede too many’

Thomas Vermaelen believes that his Roma side ‘concede too many goals’ and ‘need to work on their organisation.’

The Belgian has been out since September 8th after having made just two Serie A starts since making a loan move from Barcelona in the summer.

The 31-year-old came on in the 92nd minute of Roma’s 3-2 victory overPescara, replacing Mohamed Salah.

“I felt good and I’m happy to be back after two months out. I worked hard to recover. The feelings are good and I hope to play some more minutes.

“Juventus? We knew their result against Genoa and so we knew what we had to do to close the gap.

“However, these matches are always tricky. It is true that we concede too many goals, we have to be more organized as a team and we have to work on this.

“If the team is stretched it means that they are not well-organised on the pitch. We need to work on our synchronisation.”
