Rudi Garcia believes his side Roma switched off in the second half of their 1-1 draw to AC Milan.
Roma went ahead minutes into the first half, with Rudiger getting his first. Kucka levelled it for Milan in the second half.
And Garcia has rued the lack of consistency in their game.
“We deserved to win based on our first-half performance and lose based on our second. That shows we lacked consistency,” Garcia told reporters.
“It’s a shame because the team made a really strong start to the match. Besides the goal, we had two good opportunities through [Umar] Sadiq and Rudiger’s header off the woodwork.
“It’s a shame we didn’t convert them. Then we forgot how to play in the second period.”
The Frenchman has come under pressure in recent weeks, with Roma having won just once in two months.
Asked if he felt under pressure, Garcia said: “That’s the least of my worries. Now all I’m concerned with is figuring out how to improve this team.
“We have to play like we did in the first half – even better in fact – and not reproduce what we did in the second period tonight.”
Roma’s next test comes in the form of Verona.
