Eugenio Corini has quipped that if he were Rudi Garcia, he’d be worried about facing Chievo at the weekend.
The Flying Donkeys host Serie A’s second place outfit on Saturday evening in improved form, having won their last two home games on the bounce.
On from a positive performance, albeit in defeat last week against Fiorentina, the Veronese outfit’s Coach has warned Roma ahead of Week 29.
“If I were the Giallorossi’s Coach, I’d be worried because Chievo are a healthy team,” Corini has commented this week to the Corriere dello Sport.
“In Florence we have demonstrated as much - there is still regret about how it ended, but the performance has been positive on the whole.”
Corini is back with the Gialloblu for a second stint as Coach, after first leaving at the end of last season.
“Why did I go first time around? The club is important and must always have the last word. But the Coach has a role of great responsibility and must be able to have a say too, he must be able to affect with his words.
“This is why at the end of the season, I preferred to distance myself. In November I returned aware of the difficulties that I would face.
“I believe, however, in this group and I am convinced that we will save ourselves. How many points will we need? We’ll see, definitely fewer than 40.”
