Roma general director Mauro Baldissoni to SportMediaset ahead of Palermo-Roma:
Is the formation a signal?
Those choices are made by the Mister, he makes them depending on the opponent. Whether or not he plays his usual eleven doesn’t mean he’s sending a message. I trust the Mister and there’s always a reason for his choices.
Is there pressure and fear?
Losing creates issues and continuing to do so makes it difficult. It’s only right that pressure is applied to strong players and they must meet the expectations with results. They have the means to get out of this spell and I think they will.
