Nicolò Zaniolo and Tammy Abraham took to their official Instagram accounts to comment on the loss in the Rome Derby.
Goals from Roger Ibanez and Jordan Veretout were not enough for the Giallorossi as Lazio beat them 3-2 in the Derby Della Capitale on Sunday.
It was a thrilling game with controversy on and off the pitch.
Zaniolo earned a debatable penalty kick before being subbed off in the second half. The Italian starlet reacted to insults from Lazio fans with some rude gestures, but he wasn’t the only one to overreact after the final whistle.
The Italian midfielder had a more measured reaction when he took to his official Instagram account to react to Roma’s loss.
He wrote ‘With our heads held high’ receiving thousands of likes and comments.
Among those is the former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham who has two goals in eight appearances so far, but failed to find the net in the derby.
“We’ll be back,” the Englishman wrote.
On Thursday, the Giallorossi return to action when they face Zorya in the Conference League before hosting Empoli at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
