Giallorossi coach, , recently spoke to Roma TV about different subjects, including the upcoming Roma derby, and the attacking players’ movement.

Spalletti spoke well about Salah’s performance during Roma’s match against Sassuolo, in which Salah brilliantly scored the opener for his team.

“Since our full-backs join in on our attacks, the wingers obviously have to come inside to find space for both to receive the ball.

“Take the goal away against Sassuolo for example, Salah did well to pick up the ball on the opposition full-back’s inside shoulder but away from the centre-back,” Spalletti explained.

He described this tactic as a corridor of uncertainty that spreads confusion, since it creates numerical overloads and pulls defense players out of their position.

Spalletti also praised Salah’s decision to shoot during the Sassuolo match. “Diego Perotti’s movement was also important here: When Salah decided to shoot, he could even have played Perotti in. But he scored so he made the right decision,” he added.

Mohamed Salah recently scored in ’s last-minute come back against Nigeria in the 2017 AFCON qualifiers.
