Roma boss Luis Enrique says he has no doubts about the future. “I already know what I want to do, I’m 100 per cent sure.”
The tactician’s career at the Stadio Olimpico is under discussion despite the fact that he still has a year left to run on his contract.
“I’m just thinking about Chievo for now,” the tactician stated ahead of Tuesday’s game at the Stadio Bentegodi in Verona.
“I like to work and not talk. I’m proud to be Roma boss. I’m a different kind of Coach and I’ll talk to the club at the end of the season.
“However, I already know what I want to do, I’m 100 per cent sure.”
Roma were in a position to fight for the Champions League a few weeks ago, but now they may struggle to get into the Europa League.
“It has been a tough season with a few regrets, but it has not been disastrous,” the former Barcelona B boss commented.
“We know that we can’t lose any more games and we don’t know if nine points from the last three matches will be enough to get into Europe, but we have to try.”
Enrique seems to have the support of the club and his players, but the fans’ patience is being tested.
“I’m still very motivated and I don’t feel as if it is just me against everyone,” continued the ex-Spanish international.
“I’m just interested in working and all I am thinking about now is the next game.”
Roma have had a topsy-turvy campaign, having won 15 games and lost 14 from 35 so far in Serie A.
“I’ve always thought that it was better to win games than to draw,” he added. “That’s one of the reasons why we have lost a few too many encounters…”
Daniele De Rossi is expected to play in midfield tomorrow, while Maarten Stekelenburg and Bojan Krkic will be missing.
