Spal midfielder and Italian international Salvatore Esposito was asked about his relationship with manager Daniele De Rossi, the former Roma mdifielder.

De Rossi was appointed manager by the Serie B side last month—marking his very first head coaching stint.

“Having a manager who focuses a lot on youth is fantastic,” Esposito told FIGC.it. “I’ve always had a great relationship with him, and he’s always been my idol.”

“For me, having him as my coach means more responsibility: in addition to doing well for Spal and myself, I also need to do well for him.”

Adding, “He’s someone who really helps me, and I always want to give more for him. He’s a well-liked person and a well-prepared coach; he’s an example to follow.”

Spal currently sit 12th in the Serie B table and have tallied a record of 1 win, 3 draws, and 1 defeat since De Rossi’s appointment.
