Roma: 'Zeman not up for debate'

Roma general manager Claudio Fenucci assures Zdenek Zeman “is not up for debate” despite recent setbacks.

The Giallorossi have lost their last two games 3-2 despite taking the lead and have the worst defensive record in the Division.

“We have already said this week that our Coach is not up for debate,” Fenucci told Sky Sport Italia ahead of tonight’s game with Palermo.

“The squad is made up of strong players and they can improve with work. I think our Coach is working on the defensive approach with the whole team to perfect the movements.

“This side does play with sparks of fantastic football and now we just need consistency throughout the match. When results start coming in, then confidence will also grow.

“Zeman plays a very aggressive style of football, which is why the team also concedes a great deal. The fact that Roma’s games are entertaining to neutrals as well as our fans is positive and a good advert for football.

“Mattia Destro and Miralem Pjanic are on the bench again, but I think we should be proud to have so much strength in depth.”
