Spalletti speaks ahead of Austria Vienna clash

John Solano

Roma manager Luciano Spalletti spoke today ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League match against Austria Vienna. Here are his words:

Do you believes you have found the right set-up in defense?
We’ve been seeing more balance, there is a growing attitude of unity that involves the entire team. We have done very well behind the ball, we defended together, this is essential.

What do you want to keep from the Napoli match? What would you like to improve?
I’d like to keep everything because then but we must also improve. We must improve on taking advantage and making the final pass, we could have better exploited things against Napoli. It’a true that we won and we brought home an important result, but there are many things happened that we were unable to do entirely.

Szczesny said things on Astra Giurgiu during the international break (saying it was an easy match). Do Roma need more balance against lesser opponents?
I’ll correct you like I corrected Szczesny, he didn’t play because I didn’t choose him. Tomorrow night he is not playing, Alisson is. Anyone can say what he wants, as long as it’s inside the law. In general, I make choices and take the work we do into account. Alisson has shown he can be used, he’ll get his chances based on my choices and my research into situations.
