Luciano Spalletti praises Mohamed Salah
AS Roma manager Luciano Spalletti spoke to Mediaset Premium about the team’s performance against Bologna, saying that they played very well during the second half.
Mohamed Salah secured the win for Roma against Bologna, after scoring his first Serie A hattrick, to keep the Giallorossi in the second place behind league leaders Juventus.
“It went better in the second half and I had expected us to be less sparkling than usual, as we returned late on Thursday night after the Europa League game in Vienna,” Spalletti said.
“We were quite bad at the start, but then got into gear. There are a lot of injuries, but we have many talented players and they stepped up when needed,” he added.
Nevertheless, Spalletti has more problems coming up because Salah will go to the African Cup of Nations with Egypt in January and he joked about it saying that they will have to buy someone exactly the same.
“Oh that’s easy, you just buy someone exactly the same,” Spalletti answered when he was asked about how will he replace Salah.
“I have Stephan El Shaarawy and Juan Iturbe who can do well with more confidence,” he concluded.
AS Roma head into the international break four points behind league leaders Juventus, and one point ahead of third-place AC Milan.
