Strama, nicknamed 'the Italian Andre Villas Boas,' made his career as youth team tactician at his hometown club from 2005 to 2011.
"Am I looking for some sort of revenge? No, zero," assured Strama in his Press conference.
"If I am at Inter, then I owe it to the six years I spent at Roma. That is the truth. I will always thank the Giallorossi, as I became a professional at Trigoria.
"I was thrown into the mix early and am learning many things by experiencing them. Obviously I lack experience, but I am trying to absorb information at the speed of light from all sources.
"Zeman is the same age as my father, he was already training before I was born and remains a great Coach. For a young tactician like me, he set the bar for a certain way to play football and I admire him a great deal. We will try to win the game, as always, but Zeman is inimitable."
