Luciano Spalletti applauds his side for their performance and believes they can finish the season strong in their quest for second.
Following Roma’s 1-1 draw against Bologna, head coach Luciano Spalletti spoke to the media about his team’s performance:
”We try to play well every Sunday and at the end of the season, reap the rewards. Personally, I look at it the same way for Inter and Napoli. We are training the right way and I am seeing a great amount of willingness from my players. The squad did exactly what was asked of them. Tonight, it was small details that made the difference”
I spoke to the players, making them understand that they can do something more. We always had the ball in our possession tonight. We had an enormous amount of opportunities. We accept the draw and are proud of the result nonetheless. I compliment Bologna and now we move forward.”
”If I selected him, it is because I felt he could still contribute to the team. When he entered the pitch, the entire stadium experienced a feeling of enthusiasm. His quality is very important.”
”He was hurt. I delayed the third substitution because Dzeko was not well enough to start. He did not train yesterday but wanted to play. He did an MRI which revealed the possibility of an injury we if would have played from the first minute.”
”To me, he should play a more central role because knows how to break through the defense. He has scored more goals from that position than others who used to occupy that role.”
