Luciano Spalletti: Mohamed Salah is gorgeous
Salah managed to score Roma’s third goal as well as assisting the first against Napoli to help close the gap with Juventus at the top of the league.
In the post-match conference Spalletti stated: “Surely this was one of the highlights of my second Roma term both for the quality that was shown on the field and the toughness of the opponent. I’m very satisfied with what we have did today as we showed quality and we will have to wait and see how Juventus will do.
“If you win such games, it shows your squad’s quality and how they are true footballers who showed their true spirit to win such important clashes.”
When asked about Dzeko and Salah, he stated: “Dzeko scored twice but he needs to be meaner, while Salah, He is gorgeous! He was very good defensively, sometimes playing as a left back. Napoli’s defense were really tired because of him, but sometimes he needs to think faster.”
Roma moved to the second place in the Serie A table, two points behind Juventus, who still have a game to play. Il Giallrossi will face Austria Vienna in the Europa League in their next clash this Thursday.
