Luis Enrique plans to introduce new style to Roma

New AS Roma coach Luis Enrique intends to introduce a new style of football to the Giallorossi.

Roma welcomed their new tactician on Friday when the former Barcelona B manager took a tour of Trigoria training ground.

"We tested the water with many Coaches, but none showed his enthusiasm. He is a top choice, like Andre Villas Boas," said new director of sport Walter Sabatini.

"It is a courageous new direction and one designed also to provoke. He is a man accustomed to challenging himself.

"His football never bows down to opponents, as it is a little arrogant, like the way people park in Rome.

"Luis Enrique has a two-year contract and that is the right time to understand if he'll be our 'conductor.'

"I'd go so far to say that this is a cultural revolution for Roma. Will we win straight away? No, but we will start working towards it."
