The Spaniard spoke to the Spanish outlet ‘El Mundo’ in reference to the forthcoming Champions League match against Barcelona. He also praised Di Francesco for his great work in the Italian capital.
I am still trying to understand the Monchi needed for Roma. My strategy in Italy may not be the most normal for me. I made a big change in my life and I have to know myself again.
Monchi spoke about the Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco. “He was not a risky bet. There was a solid base to believe that he was the right choice for us. I chose him for his ability but also for his knowledge of Roma. He played here for four years winning a Scudetto. He knows how special it is to work for Roma. In addition, I was looking for a balanced coach. Someone able to keep a good relationship with press and media and to make the most out of the players on our team,” said the sporting director.
He also spoke about the forthcoming Champions League clash Barcelona-Roma. “I am aware that the last time Roma played at Camp Nou lost 6-1. I have read and seen it many times. But I hope things get a little better this time,” concluded Monchi.
