Roma legend and club director Francesco Totti backs Eusebio Di Francesco despite a difficult run of form.
Roma are on a bad run of form as after losing their Champions League Round of 16 first leg 2-1 away to Shakhtar Donetsk, and were defeated 2-0 at home to Milan on Sunday. This poor run of form has seen Roma on the verge of being eliminated from the Champions League and falling down to fifth place in Serie A, meaning they have dropped out of a Champions League position.
Eusebio Di Francesco has found himself under pressure but Francesco Totti backed the former Sassuolo Manager when speaking to RMC Sport.
“In the arc of the season, there may be ups and downs, especially in Rome, these problems happen, but we’ll definitely resolve them and have a great end to the season. There’s only one way to get out of this, and that’s unity. We need to go forward in the league and the Champions League, shut out the voices and just work.
The goals will come, we have players who can score goals and soon we’ll solve these issues. It’s hard to face these problems in Rome, it’s a particular and ambitious place where they always want the best from the players. I’m not worried, we’re all behind the Coach who will pull us out of this situation. It’s not a critical situation, but we’ll try to change course.
It’s always a delicate period when we lose, but the club is behind him and we’ll support him to the end. He’s a staple of our club”.
