The Italian coach spoke to ‘The Guardian’ about the upcoming Champions League match Liverpool-Roma.
Liverpool and Roma are definitely thinking about the forthcoming UCL clash that will take place at Anfield on Tuesday at 2:45 PM (EST). Di Francesco knows that Klopp‘s side can be very dangerous because able to counterattack properly with its three fast strikers. Momo Salah is not the only danger for the Giallorossi, Mane and Firmino perfectly fit in Klopp’s tactical scheme. The Reds are doing great things in the Premier League as well as in the 2017-18 Champions League.
“My players told me that he [Salah] is a great guy and professional. A player who works hard. His qualities are well-known. I have prepared several matches against him when he was playing in Italy. Most of my players know him well too. This could be an advantage for us,” said the EDF.
Di Francesco firmly believes that football is a job but the players must have fun as well in order to perform properly.
“What we do is a job but it must also be fun. Training must be a joy. This is what I always say to my guys. First of all, this is a game.”
