Monchi speaks ahead of SPAL

Roma sporting director Monchi to SportMediaset before Roma-SPAL:

Schick is on the bench. Is there also a need to help manage the mentality of a player?
Yes, I think this is the Mister’s job. After being out for three months, he played against Genoa for 10 minutes as it was too early for him to start. The Mister is looking out for the youngster.

He’ll play against Qarabag?
Slowly, slowly. He was injured for a long time and we must not rush him.

A draw would be best. We could take two points off each of them. Napoli are strong right now and are in a moment of confidence, it will be a good match for the fans.

Did you expect this from Kolarov?
He is a certain bet. He is a great professional, with great experience. He still knows this city and Italian football, so we were convinced that his path would be a good one.
