Di Francesco: I Want to See My Players With Blood in Their Eyes

Eusebio Di Francesco | AS Roma

The Italian coach held a press conference ahead of Roma-Inter. Di Francesco pushes his men to do their best to overcome difficulties and make that necessary leap in quality.

Just one more day before the big Serie A home clash Roma-Inter. Both sides have lost their respective Champions League matches albeit the Lupi have already celebrated the qualification to the next round collecting relevant revenues.

But the next Serie A clash at the Stadio Olimpico seems to be key for Di Francesco’s future in the Italian capital. Reportedly, Pallotta is sick of the endless highs and lows his team is experiencing in the current campaign. In today’s press conference, instead, EDF analyzed the forthcoming match against Luciano Spalletti‘s side focusing on a prompt reaction that his men must have to reach the Champions League spots.

“We have to give something more. There are many components which are linked to both absences and the mental aspects. We have to give continuity to a thought and mentally emerge from the difficulties,” said Di Francesco to the press today at Trigoria. “We also need a bit of luck. Although this is never happening, it is up to us to turn this in every sense.”

“I try to convey certain concepts, which I also had as a player. The desire to take the ball bringing it to the middle of the field…Whatever I suffered a goal or I scored one, I still need to try to score one more. This is the right mentality that we have to convey. But it’s not always easy to do so. It’s like in a family…children do not understand what you say immediately. We get angry from morning to night, but slowly they’ll get there,” explained the Italian coach.

“We have shown that we [Roma] can do everything. We can score goals for ourselves and do it for our opponents as well. We must forget these mistakes to face Inter with great determination. In difficult moments, we want to see blood in their eyes [of his players]. We have to give our best.”
