Former Parma boss Franco Colomba is impressed by the style of play Luis Enrique has brought to AS Roma.

Roma edged Parma 1-0 yesterday.

“I have respect for people who try to innovate in football,” told Colomba to Radio IES.

“Even though I think Nils Liedholm left an imprint in this way, since he took great care of ball possession and fast counter-attacks.

“Under Luis Enrique, there is a great frenzy to win the ball back, as indeed there is at Barcelona, so he is to be respected.

“[Introducing new ideas] is usually difficult, but much depends on the players you have. There is also the need to support the Coach in difficult times, as Roma have done.”
