Luis Enrique wins Sannino praise

Roma will be a major threat in Serie A next season, says Siena boss Giuseppe Sannino.

The Tuscans beat the Giallorossi 1-0 on Monday night, but the former Varese tactician has faith in the potential of the capital outfit.

“If you want to see great football then you have to watch Milan, Juventus and Roma,” Sannino told Radio Mana Mana.

“Next year you will see Luis Enrique’s Roma fighting for the big prizes…”

The Spanish tactician arrived in the summer after a spell in charge of the Barcelona B side, but he has his critics given Roma’s inconsistent displays and results.

“People still don’t understand what new things Luis Enrique has brought to the Italian game, but you will do in the future,” Sannino added.

“I instantly saw it, from the very first game of the season. He’s brought in total football, with players who interpret different roles.

“It’s a pleasure and a stimulating experience to take on Luis Enrique. He’s a guy who respects his colleagues and journalists, a man who follows his own path.

“Roma have done well to support him and I’m sure that they will be repaid for their faith in him. Just watch what happens next season.”
