The average points per match collected by Spalletti with his AS Roma are simply astonishing. The Tuscan coach jumps at the top of the standing compared to his predecessors.
A very interesting report realized by Francesco Balzani and published by the Italian AS Roma news website ForzaRoma.info highlights the unbelievable performance of Luciano Spalletti with AS Roma.
Since his return to Rome, the Tuscan coach collected 33 wins, 6 ties, and 6 defeats, a sequence of matches that allowed the giallorossi to collect 105 points.
Right now, Luciano Spalletti is the best coach in AS Roma’s history, even ahead of master-coaches like Liedholm and Capello who lifted trophies.
We are talking about numerical factors that everyone can review, Spalletti leads the standings of the most prolific AS Roma coach, the person who collected the highest average points per match (2.33). In a normal league, not like the Italian Serie A affected by a serious loss of competition due to the 20 teams that are included by the FIGC, these numbers would lead AS Roma to the title.
Returning to the actual situation, thanks to the 7 wins out of 8 matches played since the beginning of 2017, Luciano Spalletti overcame the remarkable performances of Rudi Garcia version 1.0.
Thanks to the incredible performances that the giallorossi are making since his return to the capital of Italy, Spalletti overcame the great results that he obtained in his AS Roma version 1.0 under Sensi’s presidency. In that period the Tuscan coach collected an average 1.9 points per match.
