On the sidelines of the presentation in Rome of Pietro Chiodi’s book, “From the Curva Sud to Paradise”, Eusebio DiFrancesco intercepted by the microphones of TMW extension he focused on some Roma issues, including the latest case relating to Karsdorp: “Let’s clarify this thing: I didn’t have a ferocious discussion with the boy, I made a technical choice to give him a signal. I also did it with other players I left him in the stands to make him understand that he had to work differently. Karsdorp is a boy like so many others, I can’t go into the situation with Mourinho because I don’t know what they said to each other or what happened. I can only say that he is a he was a good boy, perhaps he alternated excellent games with less good ones. With me he had a serious knee injury which led to his performance not being constant, but in recent years he had grown a lot, I consider him an excellent footballer”.
Rome’s performance. “I think Roma were less good in the standings last year, they alternated good games with less good ones, they lack a bit in maneuvering and play quality and also the other night they showed that they can’t do without Dybala, who however cannot play all the games in this championship. I think Roma have the points they deserve in the standings. Everyone brings home what they show on the pitch, there is a long break but today Roma deserve what they have “.
Which team has surprised you the most so far? “It’s too easy to say Napoli. Also from the point of view of the beauty of the game and the continuity of results, even in Europe”.
From the outside, are you observing any coach in particular? “I’m following all the coaches to a certain extent. Mourinho also has qualities in terms of communication and strategies, I’ve also said this in the past. Some mistakes I made, he didn’t make them. Tactically, everyone has a bit of the his thought, but this thing is welcome, if we were all the same it would be a disaster”.
