AS Roma’s sporting director Walter Sabatini deeply analyzes Roma’s disease. He believes that the Giallorossi are experiencing a kind of technique frustration.
“A few times yesterday I saw moments of great football played by our guys. Totti, Verde and Gervinho illuminated the scene during the first half. Roma can recover its mechanisms and offensive dangerousness. We must keep the confidence because we have a group of strong players that will demonstrate their value and, moreover, they will obtain the forecasted objectives. The team experiences a kind of technique frustration!”
“It is difficult to find a real explanation for this moment. I can say that the players are strong and the coach is the same of the previous year. Our guys are constantly playing to win but it is difficult for them because they have a weak physical condition. I probably made some mistakes during this transfer market window because I pursued two really strong players but I didn’t think about the immediacy but about the future. Ibarbo and Doumbia are great players but one was injured and the Ivorian striker has been inactive for a long time.”
“Pjanic? We must have faith that he will come back as the player that we all know. We always hoped that he could solve the problems of the team but in this period he is not performing well. However, he works really hard for Roma. The players must do something more in this bad moment and they are training so hard to do well again.”
“The physical situation of the team is not easy to analyze. We need more sprint and we’ll recuperate that. In this moment there are not situations to analyze but to resolve. Our actual physical condition suffices to let us reach our goals.”
“I would like Roma to recuperate that technical and tactical harmony that we demonstrated for more than one year. We were playing sublime football and everyone was speaking about us.”
“Our mister is a young guy (51 years old today!) and I hope that he will be able to celebrate positive results very soon. He believes in his players and he will manage to get out of this moment. “
