Di Francesco Attacks: “The Tactical Approach Dies When There is no Desire to Defend”

Eusebio Di Francesco - AS Roma

Roma leaves the Dall’Ara stadium with zero points and a very shabby performance against Bologna. The Italian coach is unhappy and shocked.

Everybody was expecting a win from Roma today. Although Filippo Inzaghi‘s side had never scored a goal since the beginning of the season, the giallorossi gave them the possibility to stub Olsen two times in front of their cheering fans.

In the post-match interviews, Eusebio Di Francesco tried to explain the current moment of his men but left many doubts on his future.

“Everybody says that we need to work hard but every coach works but I didn’t find the solution at this time. I am responsible. We lacked in personality. We had opportunities but something is missing.”

It looks like the players are not following their coach anymore. But EDF believes that only men with a strong character can react and change this tough moment.

“It’s necessary to demonstrate who you are year after year. My men want to score goals but they lack in freshness. I am getting crazy because we had the opportunity to work together during the retreat. We worked on the defensive plays and I cannot stay still when I see these things,” said Di Francesco honestly.

“If we do not trigger something inside us, it’s going to be difficult. Now, we can only stay in silence and work hard. Everything is against us. The tactical approach dies when there is no desire to defend in a certain way. We must not lose habits and movements. We must react in difficult times. Now we see those who have character and strong psychological abilities.”
