Former AS Roma coach Carlo Mazzone has slammed the club over the sacking of Zdenek Zeman.
The Giallorossi directors came together for crisis talks and pulled the plug on Zemanâ€™s brief reign yesterday afternoon, handing the team to member of staff Aurelio Andreazzoli.
â€śI do not agree with the decision to sack Zeman,â€ť Mazzone told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
â€śWhen they decided to hire Zeman, they knew his strengths and weaknesses. It requires patience and I donâ€™t think he was responsible for the situation that was created there.
â€śZeman has an important career behind him and he wouldâ€™ve paid out of his own pocket to win with Roma. It was his dream job.
â€śOver the last 18 months this team has changed so many players, some who are very talented and others who are just kids. They need time to grow.
â€śI wouldâ€™ve gone to the end of the season with Zeman and given him time, even after 10 defeats. Whoever made this decision is incompetent. Making a choice like this at this stage of the season is incomprehensible.â€ť
