Roma is ready for a new Italian challenge. The Giallorossi will face Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.
Di Francesco is not happy with the 4-1 defeat against Barcelona but he is satisfied with the tactical performance of his boys. “Barcelona enhances my way of playing, I like to face these teams because you can quickly recover the ball and create opportunities,” said the coach.
Unfortunately, Under is still injured. The Turk will not be called up for the next Serie A match against Fiorentina. Nainggolan, on the other hand, will undergo a physical test today to understand his availability. Diego Perotti will not play tomorrow because “he suffered a bad blow to the calf,” said Di Francesco. The Italian coach is happy with Defrel’s performance at the Camp Nou and for this reason “he will surely play.”
President Pallotta will be in Rome soon but EDF is not worried about his arrival because “I am the coach and I constantly interact with Monchi. If I had to talk to Pallotta we would talk a bit about everything, but I have no specific topics to discuss.”
Schick is still in trouble and EDF believes that the only chance to see this great talent playing well again is to leave him alone and without responsibility. “Often players with a great talent do not express themselves in certain contexts, there are many situations that can be linked to different things,” said Di Francesco.
