(ANSA) – Spalletti has to deal with the season’s first verdict, the elimination from the Europa League. However, the coach collected the compliments of the president James Pallotta after having listened to his criticism in recent days.
“Unfortunately I had to watch the game in the hotel because I was sick, but I think that the team has played the best 90 minutes since I am the owner.”
– the words of the Bostonian tycoon at the end of a day of institutional meetings with the City and the Region to discuss the new project of the stadium at Tor di Valle –
“We never conceded anything, we were unlucky and some calls did not go in our favour. I thought that the team could not keep that pace, however, they did it until the end of the extra time. I am most proud of how they played this match than any other this season.”
The first vanished goal of the season does not seem to have touched much Pallotta, who will go to Trigoria in the next few days. At stake, there is a face-to-face with Spalletti, “Of course I’ll see him” confirmed Pallotta.
