Former Roma Coach Zeman Smashes Pallotta’s Business Strategy

Zeman knows how difficult the Roman environment is but blames the directors of Roma for their trading style.

It was a great love story between Zdenek Zeman and Roma. Although the Bohemian had coached Lazio earlier in his career, the Roma fans have loved his offensive approach when he joined the giallorossi.

His second experience with the Lupi has not been positive though. The coach left the club after many disappointing performances.

But Zeman has a tight bond with Roma and the eternal city. He spoke about the current moment of the Lupi to RMC Sport.

Everybody wants to go to Roma but the problem is to stay there. That is a very important environment even if things are not going well at this time. The main issue for a coach is to sit on the Roma bench for a long time,” said Zeman.

The former coach of the Lupi also blamed Pallotta for his trading strategy.

Each summer the club trades out its best players. This is their main issue. By doing so, you have to give time to adapt to the new players. We are not talking about their quality [of the players] but about their adaptation to the Italian championship.”

Even if Pastore is good, it’s difficult to play him in a 4-3-3. If you move him in midfield, he suffers the defensive phase. Schick is not an offensive winger. He must play as a striker but Dzeko is there,” concluded Zdenek Zeman.
