Former AS Roma star Ruggiero Rizzitelli has slammed the tactics of coach Luis Enrique.
Enrique is under fire after two consecutive defeats and fans called for his resignation.
â€śIt hurts my heart to see Daniele De Rossi stuck among the defenders. Itâ€™s not possession football, itâ€™s keep-ball, but in training you get a point for every 10 touches,â€ť Rizzitelli told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
â€śFootball is very different to a training exercise. Itâ€™s only natural the fans are starting to lose patience, especially in a demanding city like Rome.
â€śEither you give this ambitious project with many young players to an experienced Coach, or you do it outside of Rome. A side that has to win needs a solid skeleton and here the players are all out of position, disoriented and without certainty.
â€śIf Enrique doesnâ€™t want centre-forwards, then why do they have Marco Borriello? In defence the Spaniard wants people who can play the ball, but instead signed Simon Kjaer, who is a great marker with terrible feet.â€ť
