Roma coach, Spalletti spoke about the tactical situation of Salah in his press conference ahead of the weekend’s match against Torino.

Luciano Spalletti addressed several issues concerning his team in the presser. Among these was a tactical assessment of Salah. The Egyptian forward came under criticism after the loss to Fiorentina.

Spalletti explained the difference in Mohamed Salah starting from a higher or deeper position on the pitch. “I say if Salah is able to start in a more central role and 10 metres higher up the field, the path to go one-on-one with opposition defenders is shorter.

If he has to start from the position of doubling up with the right-back, the path is doubled and he has more players to trying to stop him.”

The AS Roms coach also talked about the combination between Salah and Florenzi, the side’s right-back. “We also need to find a way to help the fullback attack, so it’s about balance.”

Mohamed Salah has scored three goals in Serie A this season. His teams sits third on the table after playing five matches.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
