Di Francesco speaks after Empoli win


Eusebio Di Francesco to DAZN after Empoli 0-2 Roma:

Was this your ugliest win?
We could have done better, it was a good first half where we managed the ball well. In the second half, they grew a bit, you have to congratulate them, they did well and they deserved something more.

Did you want to cover more ground with three at the back?
They were seeking depth with Caputo, even if he went offside many times. The fullbacks could give more coverage, they have to work more together, though.

Luca Pellegrini?
He must continue to work with humility, but he has great awareness. I do not care about age, rather, I prefer someone who has the characteristics to perform. He could have done better on some occasions, but I took him off because he had a little problem in his calf at the end of the first half.
