Roma back boss Zeman

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has backed boss Zdenek Zeman after another Serie A defeat.

The Giallorossi lost their second consecutive game 3-2 on Wednesday when they returned from Parma empty-handed.

“We know what we have to do and we’ll support the Coach,” Sabatini is quoted as saying.

“We’ll look to understand the motives for these black-outs which are affecting us, but I ask the fans to have faith.”

The capital club have only won four games all season – and one of those was awarded to them after the Cagliari tie was postponed.

Zeman, who joined Roma in the summer from Pescara, has lived up to his attacking philosophy.

They are the League’s joint top scorers with Juventus thanks to 22 goals, but they have the worst defensive record in the Division after conceding 19.
