Eusebio craves for a solid Roma



first_imgEusebio Di Francesco praised Roma’s effort and unity in their win against ChievoStephan El Shaarawy, Edin Dzeko and Kolarov were all on the scorers’ sheet at the Bentegodi, to wrap a 3-0 win.“We started strong, Chievo fought back and gambled everything, but we were always in control and could’ve had a few more goals,” the Coach told Football Italia.💬 | Tonight’s captain – and goalscorer – on the performance… #ASRoma #ChievoRoma pic.twitter.com/cSC97QTVAY— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) February 8, 2019“You can leave 20 minutes to the opposition during a 90-minute game, no matter who you are up against, as long as you defend well and remain solid. We didn’t do that.“Chievo were very aggressive and ran big risks at the back as a result, so we had to make more vertical passes and cut their defence open. I have told the players that in those situations, if there is the option for a through ball, we should take it.“It’s fundamental to play this way that the forwards help the team, that we remain solid and don’t leave gaps between the lines. There are risks with through balls, we often read it well tonight and caught Chievo offside repeatedly.”Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.Kolarov bowed to the fans. Was it sarcastic or a genuine attempt to make up with the ultras?“I think it was a great gesture, to apologise to the fans after what happened, but once again I need to point out this lad played for a month with pain-killing injections. He could barely walk when he arrived at training and would play because we needed him.“He can say the wrong thing sometimes, but he’s a great professional and nobody can complain about his approach on the field.”Dzeko found the net and hit the crossbar, but still has only five Serie A goals this season.85′ | ♻️ | Third and final substitution for the Giallorossi…⬅️ Stephan El Shaarawy➡️ Justin Kluivert0-3 | #ChievoRoma pic.twitter.com/kvD7gWsR5h— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) February 8, 2019last_img
