Interviewer: How do you bounce back after the derby?
Salah: "It's not easy. We wanted to win a trophy but that's football. We have to move on and improve."
What do Roma need to do to win crucial matches like the ones against Porto, Lyon and Lazio?
"Nothing. We've won lots of games, perhaps we were a little tired but essentially we lost away to Lyon and won the second leg and the same happened against Lazio. We must do better."
What sort of response will you be looking for at Bologna in the league?
"It's not easy because we're playing away. The gap is now six points and we have to keep improving and believing."
The team have scored 100 goals in 46 matches. Can your great frontline still put Juve under pressure?
"We can improve. We've performed well, scoring lots of goals. We must do even more not only up front but also as a team in general. We're six points off the pace and we must improve."
Could Juve switch off with their two matches against Barcelona coming up?
"Juve are a good team. They have lots of players, as we saw against Napoli where they made seven or eight changes. We must, however, only think about ourselves and win our games."
You and Edin Dzeko have scored 47 goals between you. Are you the best strikeforce in the league?
"We've done a good job and scored lots of goals but there are 11 of us out there. We must improve as a team and win our remaining games."
What has [Luciano] Spalletti taught you?
"We've been playing better ever since he came in and you can see that on the pitch. We've improved both as a team and individuals. We've lost a couple of games, maybe due to tiredness too, but now we have eight matches to play and we must focus on winning them."
