Today, La Repubblica have reported that there was a face to face confrontation between Spalletti and the group.
“You’re going to be on the field every few days. Fatigue cannot be an excuse and that is that.” The words of Spalletti to his team were stern and to the point. It is the truth. There are many matches but only 14 bodies Spalletti can count on. Manolas and Peres are always on the pitch. Fazio, Nainggolan, and Dzeko hardly rest. The team is thin. No Gerson and Mario Rui is slowly returning. Over the next 17 days, five more matches are scheduled, including the two legs of the Europa League against Lyon.
