Enrique: 'Totti is unique'

Luis Enrique held his first Roma training session today. “Francesco Totti is unique. My philosophy is very attacking football.”

The Spanish Coach arrived at the Trigoria camp last night and took charge of his debut run-out at the training ground this morning.

His Press conference will be on Thursday, but in the meantime he sat down with Roma Channel.

“Totti? The captain is unique. I am very happy to be able to count on players of the calibre of Totti, Daniele De Rossi and Simone Perrotta, as they can set the example for their teammates.”

Mirko Vucinic has requested a transfer, but the club is eager to hold on to the striker.

“I like Vucinic a lot, as I like all players with quality. Mirko is very strong.

“I hope to transmit to the lads by philosophy, which is of very attacking football. We must always step on to the field with the same objective: Victory, whether home or away.

“This is what I believe in.”

The former Barcelona B tactician also implemented new approaches off the field, such as pushing all the tables together in the canteen to ensure the squad can eat together.
