Palermo CEO Pietro Lo Monaco has praised Zdenek Zeman as his side face-off against Roma this weekend.
The Rosanero travel to the capital to face the Giallorossi on Sunday, and the 58-year-old board member has told of his admiration for the Czech Coach.
“I think the quality of Zeman speaks for itself,” he told vocegiallorossa.it. “There's no need to elaborate any more, the facts are there for everyone to see. He is a Coach who has a clear idea of how he wants to play, and sticks to it.”
He also commented on the Stadio Olimpico side's playing staff, and the dangers facing his men.
“Roma are a team with great ambition,” he said. “At the start of the season, people were talking about maybe winning the League or qualifying for the Champions League.
“I think their players are good enough to reach those goals, and that the squad are all to be feared. It will be a difficult game for us, in what has been a difficult start.”
Speculation has surrounded Zeman's future at Roma, having won only four of their last 10 League games.
