Roma president James Pallotta has praised the work of coach Luciano Spalletti since his return to the Giallorossi.
Spalletti has led his team to seven wins on the trot, including a 4-1 demolition job of Fiorentina on Friday. Over the course of this run I Lupi have also scored 22 goals, an average of just over three per game.
“This team plays together in a compact manner and they’ve done so for a while now.” said Pallotta to Roma TV after the win over La Viola.
“We’re a little disappointed with the penalty decision but we responded well after half-time and scored another to seal the win.
“The job Spalletti is doing is extraordinary. [Stephen] El Shaarawy loves him, but the reason he’s scoring so much is because the team moves in unison.
“[Diego] Perotti, [Miralem] Pjanic, [Radja] Nainggolan were great, as were [Antonio] Rudiger and [Lucas] Digne.”
Pallotta was also optimistic about Roma’s chances in their Champions League last 16 second-leg against Real Madrid, despite being 2-0 down on aggregate.
“Against Real Madrid I expect us to do well defensively, we also scored four goals today and I do not see why we could not recover in Spain.”
