Ex-Milan and Lazio centreback Alessandro Nesta sounded critical of Roma’s defense.

In a recent appearance on Bobo TV, Nesta reiterated his preference for Lazio’s defense over Roma’s.

“Lazio concede very little and are an excellently organized side. Roma don’t work as hard as they do,” said the former Biancocelesti man.

“Roma rely on the likes of Mancini – who had his share of success at Atalanta – and Ibanez – who is also from that same school – and finally Smalling who is a bit more practical but older too.”

“Roma’s defenders don’t read their opponent as well as Lazio’s Alessio Romagnoli,” concluded Nesta.
