The Italian coach spoke to the press today. Di Francesco preaches attention against SPAL.
The Serie A is finally ready to restart after the international break. Several Roma players have been involved with their national teams but now their minds have to be focused on SPAL.
Roma will face Semplici‘s men at Stadio Olimpico tomorrow. The giallorossi do not have the possibility to miss the three points.
“Tomorrow we have a very complicated match. They have performed well against Inter and in the other games of the championship even if they have not collected good results,” said Di Francesco. “We cannot underestimate this match. This is the big mistake that is often made in this environment.”
Aleksandar Kolarov is injured and Luca Pellegrini will replace him. Schick or Dzeko will lead the offensive operations against SPAL.
“Schick has a little issue but I think we can solve it. We are assessing his situation today. The player who will give me more guarantees between him and Dzeko will play. Luca Pellegrini will play too. I’ll give him that necessary continuity to go forward with his growth path. Let’s not forget that he must work with humility. He has a great physicality and quality but he must be able to exploit them properly and keep learning.”
There’s no possibility to make experiments. Eusebio Di Francesco wants to go ahead on the right path after having collected four wins in a row.
“What I really have to do is to give certainties to the group,” said the Roma coach.
